England – League Two Playoff
Date: Wednesday, 18 May 2022
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Sixfields Stadium.
Northampton missed out on a direct ticket to League One, just because of their slightly inferior goal difference and they will be determined to not let such a thing deny them a chance to get promoted.
However, the first leg of the playoff did not go well for them, as they were defeated on the road 2-1 by counterparts Mansfield.
And it needs to be mentioned that these counterparts have been on a good run of results for the past few weeks. And they have also been finding the back of the net at impressive rates.
With a ticket to the final of the playoffs at stake, expect either team to give their absolute best on the pitch this Wednesday. Chances are high for goals to come from either squad.
