Northampton to Win
A run of three straight victories in League Two has fired Northampton up to third spot in the standings and the in-form Cobblers can keep the good results coming against struggling Carlisle on Saturday. The Cumbrians are without a win in eight attempts in the fourth tier and with confidence in their ranks at rock bottom, another afternoon of disappointment awaits at the Sixfields Stadium.
Both Teams to Score – No
Northampton’s three-match winning surge was accompanied by a trio of clean sheets on the spin and Town have the defensive strength to keep Carlisle at arm’s length this weekend. United have failed to register in five of their last six assignments in League Two and Northampton are robust enough at the back to shut them out again on Saturday.
Over 1.5 Northampton Team Goals
Only two clubs in League Two have shipped more goals this season than leaky Carlisle and the Cumbrians’ lax defending could be punished again by a razor-sharp Northampton this weekend. The Cobblers have hit the net twice in each of their last three league skirmishes and they have the right combination of confidence and class up top to land a winning bet in the over 1.5 team goals stakes again.

Northampton Team News
Jonny Maxted, Joseph Mills and Sid Nelson make up a trio of potential absentees for Northampton this weekend. The Cobblers secured what was arguably their best result of the campaign so far last week when they battled their way to a 2-0 victory against a strong Tranmere Rovers side at Prenton Park. The win allowed Town to leapfrog their opponents in the table.
Carlisle Team News
Kelvin Mellow and Gime Toure are considered doubts for Carlisle this weekend, while first-choice keeper Magnus Norman and midfielder Josh Dixon are also expected to be absent. The Cumbrians were held to a disappointing 0-0 draw at home by fellow relegation candidates Oldham in their last outing, pushing their winless run to a dismal eight games in League Two in the process.
