Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Moss Rose Ground will host Saturday’s football game between Macclesfield Town and Northampton Town, the two teams who have different ambitions for the second half of the season. Macclesfield Town are eager to move away from the relegation zone, while Northampton Town are eyeing promotion to the League One. The Silkmen are on a seven-game unbeaten run at home ground in the League Two, which is certainly giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Northampton Town.
The Cobblers, on the other hand, have been in a fine form in 2020, with the team recording four wins in the previous five league fixtures. However, away win should not be considered as Macclesfield Town are tough to beat at home. Since 21 goals in total have been netted in the last four meetings between the two teams, a lively contest is on the horizon.
Highlighted Player (Nathan Cameron):
Born in Birmingham, England, on November 21, 1991, Nathan Cameron is a professional footballer who plays for Macclesfield Town as a defender. Cameron is a product of the Coventry City football school, and he continued wearing the sky blue shirt at the senior level.
He made 48 appearances in the league for Coventry City, but he played for the likes of Nuneaton Town (loan), Northampton Town (loan), and Bury as well before joining Macclesfield Town. Nathan Cameron has one cap for the England U20 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team.
The 188-cm-tall defender made his Macclesfield Town debut in the League two in a 2-0 loss to Milton Keynes Dons on November 17, 2018. His primary position is a centre-back, but he is capable of producing fine performances as a right-back as well. His preferred foot is right, and he wears the number 25 shirt at Macclesfield Town.
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.
