          Northampton Town vs Derby County Preview, Tips & Stats

          Derby County make the trip to Sixfields Stadium to take on Northampton Town this Saturday in League One. The Rams will be looking to close in on Portsmouth at the top of the table whereas Northampton will be aiming for a spot in the top half of the table.

          Northampton currently sit 14th in League One after 39 games. The Cobblers have 14 wins, eight draws and 17 losses, leaving them on 50 points, enough to take them into the top half of the table with a win this weekend.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Northampton have two draws and three losses.

          Charlton opened the scoring early on with Karoy Anderson finding the back of the net in just the fourth minute. Despite holding onto the lead for most of the game, Louis George Appere scored in the 80th minute to give Northampton the 1 - 1 draw. The visit to Peterborough saw Northampton take the lead, with Jon Guthrie scoring in the ninth minute. However, goals from Ephron Mason-Clarke, Kwame Poku, Joel Randall, Hector Kyprianou and Josh Knight gave Peterborough the 5 - 1 win.

          However, the next time out against Cambridge saw Northampton behind again. Elias Kachunga gave Cambridge the lead in the 16th minute but a goal from Guthrie with under ten minutes to go rescued a 1 - 1 draw. Matthew Pennington scored the only goal of the game early in the second half to give Blackpool the 1 - 0 win.

          The last time out for Northampton was against Wycombe. After a goalless first half, Matt Butcher scored a brace in the second half to give Wycombe the 2 - 0 win.

          Derby, on the other hand, currently sit second in League One. In 39 games, The Rams have 24 wins, six draws and nine losses which leaves them on 78 points, five points from top of the table Portsmouth.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Derby have four wins and one loss.

          Derby took a 1 - 0 lead into halftime against Charlton through a goal from Eiran Cashin. However, a penalty from Alfie May and a late goal from Anderson gave Charlton the 2 - 1 win over Derby. The Rams bounced back the next time out against Port Vale. An own goal from Kacper Lopata opened the scoring and goals from Dwight Gayle and Louie Sibley secured the 3 - 0 win for Derby.

          The Rams picked up another 3 - 0 win on their trip to Bristol Rovers. Gayle, Tom Barkhuizen and Martyn Waghorn all scored in the second half to give Derby the 3 - 0 win. After a goalless first half, Gayle found himself on the scoresheet again just after halftime. Sam Smith equalised just minutes later but before the hour mark, Reading were down to ten men with the red card to Andy Yiadom. Conor Hourihane then converted his penalty to give Derby the 2 - 1 win.

          The most recent outing for Derby was against Bolton. Kane Wilson scored the only goal of the game in the 78th minute to give Derby the 1 - 0 win.

          Northampton and Derby have met 13 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming all the way back in 1909. Derby dominate this fixture with eight wins in comparison to Northampton who are yet to beat The Rams, with the other five games ending in a draw.
