Tip Reasoning

  • Stevenage are winless in eight League Two matches, losing five in that run.
  • Paul Tisdale’s men have also lost three consecutive home games, all to nil.
  • Promotion-chasing Northampton thrashed Stevenage 3-0 earlier this season.

Tisdale’s men in trouble as Cobblers come calling

Paul Tisdale’s Stevenage have won just three of his 20 games in charge at the Lamex, and an eight-match winless run, of which the Boro have lost five, has left them just three points clear of the drop zone having played two games more than rivals Oldham.

A home clash with second-placed Northampton, then, is not exactly ideal for the beleaguered hosts, who have also failed to score in five of their last six games. Stevenage are thus averaging fewer than a goal per game this term, and their 56 goals conceded is a tally worse than all bar rock-bottom Scunthorpe, all stats which make for grim reading if you’re of a Boro persuasion.

Northampton, for their part, have only won one of their last five games, losing at Carlisle last time out, but a 3-0 win over Stevenage in October’s return fixture demonstrates they have the quality to dominate here. Moreover, in a league full of poor away records, only four teams, all of them also occupying places within the top six, can better their return of 24 points on their travels.

Visitors appear great value for a win

Considering Stevenage’s horrendous form, Northampton’s victory in the return fixture, and the good-value price available for those backing the visitors, a Northampton victory looks the outstanding tip for this midweek clash.

Meanwhile, with Stevenage failing to score in three consecutive home outings, a 2-0 away win could prove a decent correct score play.
