Northampton vs Accrington Stanley Predictions
- Accrington have won three of their last four league matches
- Northampton have won only one of their six league games at Sixfields, failing to score on four occasions
- Northampton have conceded 20 goals in just 11 league games
Accrington can add to Northampton’s woes
Northampton had been showing signs of progress after a slow start in League One but defensive frailties persist and they make little appeal at home Accrington.
The Cobblers have conceded 20 goals in just 11 league games this season, with only strugglers Burton having been breached more frequently.
Northampton suffered a shock FA Cup exit at the hands of National League South side Oxford City on Monday and things could have been far worse than the 2-1 scoreline.
Keith Curle made many changes for that cup exit but there were still many first teamers involved and that doesn’t bode well for the visit of Accrington.
Northampton have won only one of their six league games at Sixfields, failing to score on four occasions.
Curle will demand a response from his players but this may be a bad time to host a confident Stanley, who have won three of their last four league games.
The visitors have recorded victories over table toppers Peterborough and promotion hopefuls Fleetwood already this season and a trip to Sixfields shouldn’t be any more difficult.
Those looking for a correct-score wager should take Stanley to prevail 2-1.
Northampton have conceded exactly twice in four of their six home outings, while two of Accrington’s last three league wins have finished 2-1.
