For our Northampton vs. Stevenage prediction, we're going for a 2-1 win for the home side.
Two sides with automatic promotion ambitions meet in League Two this weekend as Northampton Town face Stevenage.
Northampton Town currently sit 2nd in League Two with nineteen wins, twelve draws and seven losses from thirty-eight games this season.
The Cobblers have had a fine campaign this time around as they look to cap it off with promotion to League One as they enter the final stretch of the season with their fate in their own hands.
They're coming into this game amidst a strong run of form having won four and drawn one of their last five matches, winning their last three on the bounce.
Better still, they've been watertight defensively in that period having conceded just one goal in their last five matches while keeping three straight clean sheets now.
They're in good form on home soil, too, having won their last three consecutive home matches without conceding a single goal.
Northampton Town are three points clear of Carlisle in 4th so things are still tight, but of all the automatic promotion contenders their form is currently the best so fans can be optimistic that they'll see this through until the end and secure promotion back to League One.
Stevenage are currently 3rd in League One with nineteen wins, ten draws and eight losses from thirty-seven games this season.
Stevenage have had a very successful campaign in League Two this time around as they, like their opponents, attempt to secure promotion to League One in what is now the home stretch of the campaign.
They enter this game amidst a slight downturn in form, however, having won two, drawn one and lost two of their last five matches.
Their most recent game saw them fall to a comprehensive 1-3 loss at home to Salford City, a result that means they're now two games without a win.
Their away form is especially concerning, having won just one of their last eight games on the road in all competitions.
To make matters worse, Stevenage have lost each of the last six head-to-head meetings with Northampton including a 2-3 defeat back in October. They may, then, be slightly lacking confidence coming into this one.
Stevenage still have the luxury of holding their fate in their own hands but they need to improve a tough to avoid an extremely nervy finish. This, however, is a very tough fixture and one they'll struggle to take all three points from.
