Tip Reasoning

  • Northampton have scored in 14 of their 17 home league games
  • Both teams have netted in four of Tranmere’s last seven away matches
  • Northampton have only lost four times at Sixfields this season

Northampton stumbling to promotion?

Northampton have moved into second place in League Two, but their recent form is not too encouraging, picking up just one win in five.

They are a frugal team, not conceding many and not getting many goals either, but they do consistently find the back of the net at Sixfields, scoring in all bar three of their outings there.

The defence has been tight of late, but a 1-1 draw against Walsall in mid-week shows there are cracks to be opened, something Tranmere will look to exploit.

Tranmere struggling

It has been a bizarre season for Tranmere, who boast the best home record in the division but have won just four times on the road and come into this one without a win in four.

They are missing Jay Spearing and Paul Glatzel due to injury, and the former’s absence has had a particular impact on their previously frugal defence who have now conceded 12 times in the last eight.

Four of those came at Newport on Saturday, the second game in a row where both teams have scored, with both teams netting in half of their last six.

This will be a tight game and both managers may settle for a point given their respective form. I predict both teams will score in a 1-1 draw.
