Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Carwley Town and Northampton Town go head to head at the People’s Pension Stadium in what is expected to be a close encounter. Crawley suffered a heavy 6-3 loss at Forest Green on Matchday 4, meaning that the lack of confidence could prove to be a big problem for the Red Devils. Northampton defenders should have Jake Hessenthaler at bay as the 27-year-old midfielder has found his goal-scoring touch of late, while Kwesi Appiah is pushing for a start.
The Cobblers, on the other hand, suffered elimination in the EFL Cup in midweek, with the team losing to AFC Wimbledon at home ground. Considering that Northampton aim to return to winning ways as well following a day-four loss to Rochdale (1-3), both teams to score betting option should be considered. The good news for the visitors is that defender Fraser Horsfall served his one-match ban at the weekend.
