Tip Reasoning

As both of these teams find themselves languishing near the foot of the table, this isn’t exactly the most appealing of Saturday’s fixtures; however, there’s plenty of reason to think that siding with the hosts could prove to be lucrative.

Northampton aren’t quite in the pickle that the visitors find themselves in and, despite only winning one of their last five, have actually performed better than their bare results suggest. The hosts have been scoring a few goals of late and could easily keep this up against a poor visiting team. At odds of 10/11, ‘Northampton to Score Over 1.5 Goals’ is the way to play this fixture.

Despite not exactly shaping well in terms of league position, Northampton haven’t actually performed that badly at home this season, especially from a forward-thinking point of view. The Cobblers have scored 23 goals on home soil, finding the net at least twice in seven of their 14 matches.

On the road is where Chesterfield have struggled the most this season. It is definitely a case of serious away-day-blues that has had a big hand in why The Spireites are currently in the relegation-zone. No one in League One has performed worse on the road than the visitors here, who’ve conceded 26 goals, letting in two or more on nine occasions (as well as in three of their last four).

When they last played in front of a home crowd, Northampton took advantage of Coventry’s predicament (which is similar to Chesterfields) to run out comfortable 3-0 winners. It’s fancied that something similar could be on the cards here with the hosts certainly fancied to notch a couple of goals, regardless of result.
