Northampton vs Accrington Prediction & Match Preview

Northampton Town vs Accrington Stanley
England – League One
Date: Saturday, 14 November 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Sixfields Stadium.

Accy have four games in hand, and they still have a lead of one point over the Cobblers. And it also deserves to be mentioned that the latter are a newly-promoted club, who are finding it hard to deliver credible performances in this comparatively much tougher league.

Going on, John Coleman’s men have been far more impressive this season, and their rare losses have come against some of the best teams in the competition.

As such, expect Accrington Stanley to have the upper hand this weekend.

  • In the past decade, only once have the guests won at this ground.

Northampton vs Accrington Stanley: Prediction

The Cobblers were winless in 11 of their last 15 overall match-ups, and they had also lost seven of their preceding eleven games. In the process, they had conceded two or more goals in 11 of their previous 15 fixtures.

Do also note that they are an inexperienced team, as they were promoted just at the end of the last season.

On the other hand, their counterparts had won five of their preceding seven games, and their sole loss during this stretch had come against the second-placed Ipswich.

Going on, they had also kept clean sheets in two of their last three match-ups as well.

Taking these stats into account, it’s adjudged that Accrington have the edge, and the logical choice would be to back them to deliver the better performance.
