Our prediction for this League 2 match:
After sharing the spoils with both Walsall and Rochdale in the last two league matches, Northampton will look to return to winning ways when they take on AFC Wimbledon on Matchday 32. The Cobblers have a chance to climb to automatic promotion berth, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Dons. Loanee Tete Yengi is likely to make his full Northampton debut against AFC Wimbledon, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
Meanwhile, the visitors have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team beating Stockport County, losing to Leyton Orient, while sharing the spoils with Carlisle United. AFC Wimbledon aim to keep their playoffs hopes alive, and seeing that they will go for a win as well, we are tempted to put our money on over 2.5 goals. Both Janneh and Al-Hamadi are pushing for a start, speaking of the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Chris Gunter):
After spending one and a half season at Cardiff City, Chris Gunter signed a deal with Tottenham Hotspur on 1 January, 2008. However, he did not play an important role in the team during the second half of the 2007/2008 Premier League campaign, making just two league appearances for the White Hart Lane outfit.
Seeing that he was not considered first-team regular in the 2008/2009 season as well, Gunter decided to join Nottingham Forest on Loan in March, 2009. Four months later he signed a permanent deal with the Reds and he stayed at the club until July 2012, when he completed a move to Reading. The Wales international signed a three-year deal with the Royals and he quickly established himself as a first-team regular. It has to be noted that he made 44 league appearances for the club in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign.
Chris Gunter was born in Newport, Wales on 21 July, 1989 and he made his debut for the Welsh national team in a friendly match against New Zealand on 26 May, 2007, while helping the Dragons reach the Euro 2016 semis in France.
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.
