Northampton Double Chance
Hartlepool have the best home record in League Two so far this season, though they have benefitted from a kind run of games at Victoria Park and they could find that Northampton are a tougher nut to crack. The Cobblers’ only defeat on the road this term came in a narrow reverse at league leaders Forest Green and they have the tools to frustrate their hosts on Saturday. With that considered, we recommend backing Northampton in the double chance market.
Both Teams To Score
Hartlepool have notched in 100% of their League Two tussles at home this season, while Northampton have found the net in four of their last six assignments in the division overall. It’s also worth noting that BTTS landed in two of Pool’s last three fixtures on home soil and the same market appeals when reliable goal-getters Northampton visit Victoria Park on Saturday.
Half Time Result: Draw
Hartlepool have been League Two’s half-time draw specialists this season and a huge seven of their first ten fixtures of the new campaign were level at the break. Northampton meanwhile, haven’t been trailing at the interval in any of their five matches on the road since the summer and the respective records on show suggest that backing a draw in the half-time result market could return dividends again.
Hartlepool vs Northampton: Match Preview
Hartlepool Team News
Key defender David Ferguson and pivotal midfield duo Gary Liddle and Gavan Holohan all missed last weekend's 2-0 defeat to Stevenage for Hartlepool and all three players are doubtful again this week. Joe Grey and leading scorer Tyler Burey are also expected to miss out for Pools. Dave Challinor's troops are currently in the midst of a four-match winless run.
Northampton Team News
Dominic Revan is considered a major doubt ahead of Saturday's game while defenders Joseph Mills and Sid Nelson have both been ruled out. Northampton limped to a disappointing 2-0 defeat at home to Sutton in their last assignment, though results and performances on the road have been much better. The Cobblers recently won at Newport and they were denied three points shortly after at Salford by a last-minute equalizer for the hosts.
