Scunthorpe vs Northampton Prediction

The hosts’ are continuing their terrible start to their League Two campaign and have registered a win just once in their last twelve games. Their previous clash on the road against Plymouth saw them salvage no more than a point, while at home they were forced to share the spoils with Bradford City.

On the other hand, Northampton are on a much more convincing form at the moment and have been at the losing end only once in their last six fixtures, that too in all competitions. The visitors have been faring well in their outings as well, and are currently unbeaten in their past three trips on the road.

Furthermore, the away side have admitted defeat just once in their last five visits to this venue. Given that the hosts are without a win in their last two League games here, the safest punt would have to be a double chance backing either a draw or Northampton to come out on top.

Additionally, the guests have been keen on searching for early goals and have found the back of the net before the break, in four of their last six outings in the League. Taking into account that they scored past this foe in the opening forty-five minutes when they last met here as well, by all means, expect Northampton to get their names on the scoresheet before the end of the first half.
