Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams scored in each of Exeter’s last 16 games.
  • Both teams scored in six of Northampton’s last seven games.
  • There were 16 goals scored across the last four H2Hs at St James’ Park.
  • Four of Exeter’s last five home games resulted in a 2-1 victory.

Excellent Exeter to continue their fine home form

Automatic promotion is the ultimate aim for these sides who are separated by just a point ahead of kick off. In a battle of second vs third, home advantage could just be the key for Exeter to leapfrog their opposition, thus taking up the chase on runaway leaders Forest Green.

Boosting the hosts confidence ahead of this clash is the fact that they are the only side in League Two who are yet to lose a home league game this term (W5, D4), a record which they will be keen to keep in tact here.

While they are tough to beat, Exeter are not impossible to break down. They have not kept a clean sheet across their last five home league games and managed to come back in both home league games when falling behind (W1, D1), leading me to believe this could be another end-to-end affair.

Northampton will give it a good go

The only side to pick up more points at home than Exeter this term is Northampton, though that imperious home form indicates a notable disparity in their away performances.

Northampton picked up just 35% of their points away from home but they do average one scored goal per-match on their travels. In fact, the main prediction would have won in five of their last six away games, while two of their last four away league games ended in 2-1 defeats.

All in all, I think this will be an entertaining affair between two automatic promotion chasing sides with goals at both ends. Finally, Exeter could come out on top to the tune of a 2-1 scoreline based on the recent evidence.
