Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Colchester and Norhampton go head to head at Colchester Community Stadium in what is expected to be a close League Two encounter. The U’s failed to impress in a 1-0 loss to Carlisle United, but they are still nine points clear of the relegation zone. All Jay, Hopper, and Newby are pushing for a start as boss Matt Bloomfield is likely to make changes to the team that suffered the loss at the weekend.
Jon Brady’s troops, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, and, no doubt, they will give 100% to put an end to their four-match winless run. Since the Cobblers are eager to climb to automatic promotion berth, we are going to bet on the visiting side this time out. Shaun McWilliams is widely expected to return to the starting XI after coming as a substitute in the last league match.
Highlighted Player (Frank Nouble):
Born in Lewisham, London on September 24, 1991, Frank Nouble is a product of the Chelsea football academy. Despite spending his youth career at the capital club, he did not see any game action with the Blues at senior level. Frank Nouble started his senior career at West Ham United, but he made no more than 13 league appearances for the Hammers.
Nowadays, he plays for Colchester United in the League Two. Frank Nouble, who has eight caps with the England U19 team, made his debut with the U’s on August 4, 2018, in a goalless draw with Notts County. He scored his first goal with Colchester United on September 15, 2018, in a 3-0 victory over Cambridge United.
Nouble’s primary position is centre-forward, but he is used as both left and right winger as well. The 190-cm-tall footballer wears the number 45 jersey at Colchester United, and his preferred foot is right.
Highlighted Team (Northampton):
Northampton are a professional football club that compete in the League Two, the English fourth tier. The Cobblers play their home matches at Sixfields Stadium, the venue that has a capacity of 7,798. Northampton Town are well known for their claret and white home kit, while black is the dominant colour of their away jersey.
Northampton did well to make it to the Charity Shield final in 1909, with the team suffering a 2-0 loss to Newcastle United in the title game. The Cobblers are holding the record for the shortest time taken to secure promotion from the bottom tier to the top flight and relegated back down to the bottom again. Northampton Town managed to do so in only nine years.
Peterborough united are regarded as the club’s main rivals, with other significant rivalries including the likes of Oxford United, Milton Keynes Dons, Cambridge United, Coventry City, and Rushden & Diamonds.
