Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Sixfields Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Northampton and Stevenage, the two teams who sit in automatic promotion berth ahead of Matchday 39. The Saddlers are eyeing their fourth consecutive league win, and they must be high on confidence ahead of the League Two derby. Both Akin Odimayo and Shaun McWilliams should recover in time to face Stevenage, while all Ali Koiki, Tyler Magloire, Ben Fox, and Max Dyche remain in the recovery room.
The Boro, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to Salford City. Stevenage are eager to stay in top three, but given their difficulties at the back, we predict that Northampton footballers will give fans yet another reason to celebrate this weekend. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team ahead of the trip to the East Midlands of England.
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.
