Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Sutton will look to put an end to their three-game losing run when they take on Northampton Town on Matchday 43. Matt Gray’s troops have slim playoffs hopes, but the hope dies last, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Northampton. Both Wilson and Kouassi are pushing for a start as Gray should opt to make changes to the team that suffered a 2-0 loss to Leyton Orient at the weekend.
The Cobblers, on the other hand, aim to stay in the automatic promotion berth, and we predict that they will take advantage of Sutton’s shaky defence. With no fresh injury worries to report, Jon Brady is unlikely to make changes to the team that shared the spoils with Carlsile on Saturday. Earlier this season the two teams played out a 2-2 draw, but away win should be considered this time out.
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.
