Our prediction for this League 2 match:
All eyes will be on Edgeley Park when Stockport County and Northampton Town go head to head in the League Two derby on Saturday. Following three consecutive league wins, Stockport suffered a 1-0 loss to Grimsby in their first game of the year, with the team remaining in the middle of the table. The Hatters aim to keep their playoffs hopes alive, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the Cobblers.
Patrick Madden returns to the starting XI, whereas Ryan Johnson has overcome his injury. The visitors, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-1 defeat at Salford City, which is probably the main reason why we are going to bet on Dave Challinor’s charges. Jack Sowerby has left the recovery room, as well as Louise Appere, but Ali Koiki remains on the sidelines with injury.
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.
