Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Northampton Town and Crawley Town square off against each other at Sixfields Stadium in what is expected to be an interesting League Two game. The Cobblers aim to climb to automatic promotion berth, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the Red Devils. Both Shaun McWilliams and Tyler Magloire have been struggling with injuries of late, and the duo is rated doubtful for Saturday’s clash.
Crawley, on the other hand, suffered yet another dip in form, with the team extending their losing run to four games at Tranmere. Since Northampton are eager to regain their spot in top-three, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team ahead of the trip to East Midlands. In the first half of the season Northampton defeated Crawley 3-2, with Kieron Bowie scoring a late winner.
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.
