            Exeter vs. Northampton Prediction, Tips & Stats

            A Northampton Town side in need of a win travel to Exeter City in what is an intriguing encounter in League One this weekend.

            Exeter City currently sit 6th in League One with five wins, one draw and three losses from their first eight games of the season.

            The Grecians have have had a solid start to the campaign as they find themselves inside the play-off spots despite few people expecting them to much more than a mid-table side this season.

            Their form has, however, started to dip slightly in recent matches as they enter this game having lost two of their last three league games.

            Their most recent league outing saw Exeter fall to a 3-0 battering away at Oxford United. While the Oxford defeat was a heavy one, their opponents are currently 2nd in the league table so the Grecians should take that as a lesson on what it's going to take to develop into a promotion contender this season.

            In midweek Gary Caldwell's side immediately made amends for that defeat in the EFL Cup as Demetri Mitchell's late goal earned them a 1-0 win over Premier League side Luton Town.

            That result is just what was needed after a faltering run of form and they'll now come into this game with momentum back on their side.

            Their home form has been solid in the league so far (W2 D1 L1) so they'll fancy themselves to take three points from this one.

            Northampton Town currently sit 18th in League One with two wins, one draw and five losses from their first eight games of the season.

            The Cobblers have struggled in their first couple of months in the third tier of English football following promotion last time out from League Two.

            They enter this game very much out of form having lost all of their last five games in all competitions, the most recent of which was a defeat to Chelsea U21 in the EFL Trophy.

            In the league their form is slightly more promising having won two of their last five, but given they've also lost their last three league games on the bounce the direction of their travel is a huge cause for concern.

            Their most recent league outing saw them fall to a 1-2 defeat at home to Barnsley in a game they fell 0-2 behind in before Louis Appéré notched a consolation goal in stoppage-time.

            Their record away from home so far in the league is won one and lost two so given they're playing a side away from home that are currently in the play-off places it's hard to see them taking anything from this game.

            For our Exeter vs. Northampton prediction, we're going for a 2-0 win for the home side.

            Demetri Mitchell will serve a one-match ban here after getting sent off late in in the win over Luton in the EFL Cup in midweek.

            Alfie Devine impressed in that game and will be hoping to be rewarded with a start here while Caleb Watts is a doubt after coming off before half-time.

            The Cobblers are coming into this one off the back of five straight defeats and could further shuffle the pack with Ben Fox and Louis Appéré both hoping to start.
