Our prediction for this League 2 match:
All eyes will be on PTS Academy Stadium when Northampton and Forest Green face each other on day 21 of the 2019/2020 League Two campaign. The Cobblers are eyeing their fifth consecutive win at home ground, and you should know that they managed to keep three clean sheets in the last four home matches in the English fourth tier. Since Northampton Town have turned their stadium into a real fortress, we are positive that they are going to find the net in Saturday’s football game.
Forest Green, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Scunthorpe United. The Green Army are eager to get back on course, but given the Cobblers’ terrific home record, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. Sam Hoskins, who scored his 5th goal of the season in the 3-2 loss to Exeter City, will be one of the men to watch in the home side.
