Northampton Town vs Charlton Athletic: Preview and Predictions

Northampton Town vs Charlton Athletic
England – League One
Date: Friday, 30 March 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Sixfields Stadium (Northampton).

The Addicks have picked up a super important 2-0 win over direct rivals in the playoffs contest Plymouth Argyle at the weekend. They are now two points shy of the top six spots and the mentioned success will definitely instill some confidence into their players ahead of Friday’s trip to East Midlands. Charlton Athletic will be looking to back up the victory with the result at Sixfields Stadium where they are set to play relegation strugglers Northampton Town.

The match has a massive significance for the Cobblers as well since the hosts have fallen down into the drop zone after a streak of seven games without a win. The team led by Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has clinched just a single point in last three league affairs and they’ll come into this on the back of a 2-0 loss away at Fleetwood Town on Saturday.

Furthermore, Northampton Town have only scored once in last three ties which is definitely the music to the ears of Lee Bowyer whose men have kept two clean sheets in a row. The Addicks will also be hoping to return on the winning ways in games away from home where they fell to both Peterborough United and Blackpool in last two league affairs.
