          Northampton vs. Barrow Prediction, Tips & Stats

          It's League One vs. League Two in the FA Cup first round this weekend as Northampton Town face Barrow.

          Northampton Town currently sit 20th in League Two with four wins, two draws and nine losses from fifteen games this season.

          The Cobblers are having a tough time of things in League Two in light of promotion from League One last time out so they'll hope this competition can act as a catalyst to improved league form.

          They're coming into this one very much out of form having failed to win any of their last five games, losing four of them.

          Their most recent outing saw them fall to a comprehensive 4-0 battering away at Derby County in a. game that really compounded the position they find themselves in.

          This is the toughest position Northampton have found themselves in since coming up to League One and they could really do with a win, even if only to break the winless streak they're currently on.

          Unfortunately they are winless in their last six games in the FA Cup but given they've also won five of their last six head-to-head meetings with Barrow they can be hopeful that this is the game that gives them their first win in what now feels like an age.

          Barrow currently sit 8th in League Two with six wins, seven draws and three losses from sixteen games this season.

          It's been a strong showing from Barrow thus far who are looking in good shape to mount a play-off push in League Two this season.

          They're entering this game in decent form, unbeaten in their last five games having won two of them.

          Most recently, Barrow claimed a 1-0 win in midweek thanks to a first half goal from Dom Telford. The win over Morecambe was a huge one for Barrow considering the Shrimps are currently in the play-off places so the three points shows Barrow are very much of the quality required to push for a top seven finish.

          Manager Pete Wild will be delighted with his side's defensive showing of late as they've now kept four clean sheets on the bounce, something that will stand them in very good stead going forward if they can maintain it.

          However, Sixfields has not been a happy hunting ground for Barrow in recent years as they've lot six of their last seven visits to this ground but given the current form of Northampton they should see this is an ideal opportunity to turn that around and claim what would be a fairly notable upset.

          For our Northampton vs. Barrow prediction, we're going for a 1-1 draw.
