Northampton vs Carlisle
England – League Two
Date: Saturday, 12th January 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Sixfields Stadium (Northampton).
Carlisle has been nearly unstoppable ever since the turn of December. The team recorded six straight wins in the league and managed to score an astonishing 20 goals in the process. As of now, they are in the fifth position in the league table, but a win in this fixture could propel them to even the second spot.
Dating back to early November, Northampton has recorded just a solitary win and is really struggling to hang on to the mid-table spot that they secured owing to their performances in the initial period of the season.
This should prove to be an exciting fixture as the clear best team in recent weeks travel to take on a struggling side with ambitions that do not seem to match their on-field displays.
