Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Crewe Alexandra and Northampton Town square off against each other at Alexandra Stadium in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Saturday’s program. The Railwaymen made a fine start to the season, with the team recording their third win of the process against Sutton. Crewe are eager to stay in the playoffs berth, but they face a difficult task in round 5.
The Cobblers, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Hartlepool and Crawley Town, but beating Crewe on the road is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, both teams should be happy with one point from Saturday’s encounter. A man to keep an eye on in the away side will be Sam Hoskins, who scored a brace against the Red Devils, while teenage midfielder Kieron Bowie could sneak into the starting XI after opening his goal-scoring account on Matchday 4.

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.
