Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Sixfields Stadium will host Saturday’s League Two game between Northampton Town and Tranmere Rovers, the two top-table sides. The Cobblers are eyeing their third consecutive league win, and the bookies see them as hot favourites to pick up all three points from the match. Sam Hoskins is back from suspension, but there are no fresh injury concerns in the home team.
The Super Whites, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to AFC Wimbledon, which is yet another reason why we are going to put our money on the promotion-chasing hosts. As for the away side, centre-back Jordan Turnbull is back from suspension, with other first-team regulars returning to the starting XI as well after they were rested in the EFL Trophy. In their last meeting in a competitive match Northampton defeated Tranmere 3-2.
Highlighted Player (Jordan Turnbull):
Born in Trowbridge, England, on October 30, 1994, Jordan Turnbull is a professional footballer who plays for Northampton Town as a defender. Turnbull is a product of Swindon Town football academy, but in 2007 he was spotted by Southampton scouts.
Despite signing a professional contract with Southampton, he did not see any game action with the Saints at senior level. The English footballer made no fewer than 86 league appearances for Swindon Town during his loan spell with the Robins, and in 2016 he signed a contract with Coventry City.
Jordan Turnbull spent the 2017/2018 on loan Partick Thistle before joining Northampton Town permanently. Speaking of his international career, the Northampton centre-back has two caps with the England U19 team, and one cap with the England U20. Jordan Turnbull, who is used as a left-back as well, wears the number 6 jersey at Northampton Town. His preferred foot is left.
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.
