Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Leyton Orient play host to Northampton Town at their Brisbane Road on day 14 of the new League Two campaign. The O’s aim to overtake Stevenage in top position, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the fellow promotion-chasing side. Since Richie Wellens has a full squad to choose from, home win should definitely be considered.
The Cobblers, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team losing to both Walsall and Salford in the last two league fixtures without managing to find the net. Since Leyton have been impressive at the back in the first half of the season, conceding no more than seven goals in the process, under 2.5 goals betting option should be considered. Ali Koiki has overcome his injury, while all Shaun McWilliams, Tyley Magloire, and Akinwale Odimayo should miss out for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Craig Clay):
After spending his youth career at Chesterfield, Craig Clay continued wearing the Spireites jersey at senior level. The English midfielder made 27 appearances for Chesterfield in the league before signing a deal with York City in the 2013/2014 season.
It has to be noted that he played for the likes of Barrow and Alfreton Town on loan as well before signing the deal with the Minstermen. Born in Nottingham, England on May 5, 1992, Craig Clay was part of Halifax Town, Worksop Town, Grimsby Town, and Motherwell squad as well in the past. Nowadays, the 180-cm tall midfielder plays for Leyton Orient in the League Two, the English fourth tier.
He made his League Two debut with the O’s on August 3, 2019, in a 1-0 win over Cheltenham Town. Craig Clay has one cap with the England C national team as he represented the Three Lions in a 2-0 win over the Ukraine U20 team on March 22, 2016.
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.
