Cambridge vs Northampton Prediction and Analysis

The hosts have built a reputation as a side that is an extremely difficult side to get the better of despite not registering many wins, having registered one of the most draws in the division. As a result, they are 12th in League One.

They are however off the back of 2 demoralizing victories. With a 1-0 loss against Stevenage that knocked them out of the EFL Trophy and a 4-1 loss against MK Dons in the league.

Northampton on the other hand is with flying colors in the league currently occupying the 4th position in League Two. They however were knocked out of the EFL Cup at home by Brighton U21 and suffered a 2-1 loss against mid-table side Bristol Rovers in their last league fixture.

The teams would go into the fixture with a similar set of fixtures in their preceding 5 fixtures. With the momentum gained over the season by the visitors, along with their fair away form and with the hosts’ tendency of drawing a lot of games, the game is unlikely to be decided in regulation time.

Cambridge as always will go into the match as favourites being the side from the higher division and with just 2 losses since the end of July across all competitions they are expected to qualify.
