Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Northampton Town play host to Scunthorpe United at their Sixfields Stadium in what is expected to be a lively League Two game. The Cobblers aim to regain their spot in top seven, and the bookies see them as favourites to win Saturday;s football match. Since Northampton failed to turn their dominance into a winning goal in the goalless draw with Crawley Town, home win should be considered.
The Iron, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Tranmere. Scunthorpe United looked solid at the back in their last league match, and seeing that Northampton have already kept three clean sheets in the new League Two campaign, we believe that there is a big value in betting on under 2.5 goals. Fit-again attacker Aaron Jarvis is widely expected to lead the line for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Joseph Mills):
Joseph Mills is an Aston Villa product who plays for Northampton Town in the League One. Mills moved to Southampton in 2006, and he continued playing for the Saints at senior level. After ending his loan spells with Scunthorpe United and Doncaster Rovers, the pacey left-back joined Reading in 2011, but he made no more than 15 appearances for the Royals in the league.
After his short spell with Burnley, Joseph Mills moved to Oldham Athletic, and it has to be noted that he played for the likes of Perth Glory, Shrewsbury Town, and Forest Green Rovers as well before moving to Northampton Town.
Mills was born in Swindon, England on October 30, 1989, and he wears the No. 23 shirt with the Cobblers. His primary position is left-back, but coaches use him as a left midfielder as well. He has a contract with Northampton Town which should expire in June 2022.
