Northampton to Win
Northampton have won two of their first three League Two home assignments this season and their strength at the Sixfields Stadium could hand The Cobblers the edge against Swindon on Saturday. Northampton felled The Robins 2-1 when the teams met at that venue in League One last term and a similar outcome is anticipated this weekend.
Both Teams to Score
Northampton and Swindon met twice in England’s third tier last season and both teams hit the net on each occasion, and we’re tipping the BTTS market to produce another winner on Saturday. The Robins have scored in 100% of their away tests in the league since the summer and they can land a consolation blow against a Northampton side that notched twice in their last home fixture against Scunthorpe.
Half Time Result: Draw
Supporters lining the stands at the Sixfields Stadium might have to wait until the second half to see the decisive moments in the game. Two of Northampton’s three home matches this term have been all square at the break, while a remarkable five of Swindon’s seven League Two tussles to date have been level at the interval. With the teams’ respective records a major factor, we recommend backing a draw in the half time result stakes again this weekend.
Northampton vs Swindon: Match Preview
Northampton Team News
Northampton carved out a narrow 1-0 win at fellow playoff hopefuls Newport on Tuesday in a victory where The Cobblers were without the services of injured pair Sid Nelson and Joseph Mills. Both defenders could miss this weekend’s game against Swindon, though Nelson is closest to making a comeback.
Swindon Team News
Mathieu Baudry, Jordan Lyden and Anthony Grant all missed Swindon’s 1-1 draw with Stevenage at the weekend and all three players could be absent again this week for The Robins’ trip to play Northampton. Manager Ben Garner is still waiting for his attackers to get going this season and Swindon have scored just eight times in seven League Two matches so far.
