Fleetwood Town vs Northampton Town
England – League One
Date: Saturday, 24 March 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Highbury Stadium (Fleetwood).
Fleetwood Town have managed to clinch a super important three-pointer on Tuesday evening when they dispatched Rochdale 0-2 on the road to move four points clear off the danger zone ahead of the weekend’s round. The new Matchday sees the Cod Army host fellow strugglers Northampton Town in a match which has the ingredients of being a true relegation six-pointer at this stage.
The Cobblers are just on the brink of the red zone ahead of this trip to Highbury Stadium. They are winless in last six league outings, but they will come into the game with an improved confidence after keeping the second-placed Shrewsbury Town to a 1-1 draw last time out. Such result serves as a massive confidence boosted after a demolishing 0-3 loss to Rotherham United at Sixfields Stadium.
The visitors could, however, face troubles finding goals in this affair given that the Cod Army have been pretty tough to break down lately, Fleetwood Town have not shipped a single goal in last two league matches as John Sheridan looks to have found the winning formula for keeping things quiet at the back lately.
On the other hand, we have to respect Northampton’s superb run o from in away fixtures as the Cobblers have won three and drawn two of last five league games on the road.
Fleetwood Town vs Northampton Town: Head-to-head
Fleetwood Town have been impeccable in home clashes with Northampton Town winning each of three so far (6-0 goal difference).

Fleetwood Town vs Northampton Town: Prediction
