Northampton, on the other end, have the second-best defense out of the entire league and conceded only 25 goals in their 31 matches. Moreover, they conceded a goal in just 4 out of their last 10 league games and in just one of their last five.

While Northampton are one of the best teams, they often have 0:0 draws as well as 1:0/0:1 wins. They do not score too many goals and curiously, Scunthorpe often manage to concede one or two max.
Match Result – Northampton
It is obvious that Northampton are the big favorite to win this game and we think that this is the most possible outcome. We expect a 0:1 or 0:2 win. We advise against big stakes for this game because Northampton have also had a bunch of draws on the road and there is always a small possibility for failure even against the weakest teams. Nevertheless, we think that they will take the opportunity for three easy points and win this match without serious issues.
