Northampton to Win
Northampton started the season brightly with three wins on the spin in league and cup before their momentum was halted by a poor result against Rochdale. However, the ship has been steadied again thanks to a point at Crawley and an EFL Trophy success at Forest Green, and Northampton are our tip to get back to winning ways in League Two against a Scunthorpe outfit that has won only once in 12 attempts on the road in League Two.
Under 2.5 Goals
The evidence suggests that Northampton’s clash with Scunthorpe could be low on net-busting action however. Three of the Cobblers’ first four league assignments of the new campaign produced under 2.5 goals, while 100% of Scunthorpe’s last four tests in the division saw two or fewer goals scored. Neither side has really clicked into gear in the final third and the under 2.5 goals market could be worth considering again on Saturday.
Half Time Result: Draw
With three stalemates in their first five matches, Scunthorpe are one of League Two’s early draw specialists. The Iron like to keep things tight, especially on the road where both of their first two away matches were all square at the break. Neil Cox’s side aren’t expected to take any chances at the Sixfields Stadium on Saturday, so don’t be surprised of Scunthorpe frustrate their hosts early on.
Northampton vs Scunthorpe: Match Preview
Northampton’s early unbeaten surge came to a somewhat surprising end when the Cobblers were beaten 3-1 at home by Rochdale in their last home game, though a couple of decent results on the road since has allowed Town to find their footing again. Northampton beat Scunthorpe 3-0 when the teams last met in January, though they played almost an hour against the Irons with a one man advantage.
Scunthorpe finally earned their first win of the new season last week when they upset the odds to squeeze past Tranmere (1-0) at The Sands Venue Stadium. Away from home, The Iron are averaging a point per 90 minutes, though their overall record on the road this year is as bad as it gets. Scunthorpe have won only two of their 15 away league fixtures since January 1st.
