Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Northampton and Forest Green take on each other at Sixfields Stadium in the League Two derby. The Cobblers aim to make amends for back-to-back losses to Swindon and Crawley, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against Forest Green. You should bear in mind that Northampton are after their eighth home win of the process.
The Green Army, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-0 win over Colchester United. Forest Green are on the right track to secure automatic promotion to the League One, and seeing that they are nine points clear of second-placed Tranmere, the share of spoils is on the horizon. As always, a man to watch in the away team will be Jamaica international Jamille Matt, who scored his 15th goal of the season at the weekend.
