Tip Reasoning

  • Rochdale conceded first in half of their league games (15) and won only twice.
  • Northampton haven’t conceded a goal across their last five matches.
  • Each of Northampton’s last four away games produced under 1.5 total goals.

Stuck in the middle with Rochdale

It has been a steady enough season for Rochdale, who look like they are going to finish somewhere in the mid-table pack as they sit seven points above the drop zone but 15 from the play-offs.

The hosts have at least gone unbeaten in four of their last five league games (W1, D3, L1) though a clash with second-placed Northampton will certainly not be an easy one.

Only six League Two sides picked up fewer home points than Rochdale’s 17 ahead of this round, which has largely been caused by their joint league-high return of eight drawn games, suggesting this will not be an easy task for the promotion-chasing visitors.

Northampton can consolidate second place

Having played one game fewer than their immediate chasers, Northampton know that victory could possibly give them a three-point cushion in their quest for automatic promotion. Helping them in that goal will be their strong backline which has kept four consecutive away clean sheets.

Three of those away games did end goalless, though it does mean that only two sides have picked up more away points than Northampton this season.

Given both sides tendencies to draw their home/away games respectively, I am going to take a chance on a Northampton win but in the ‘draw no bet market’. Given their solidity, this could be yet another goalless draw or more likely a 1-0 away win.
