Northampton Town come in to this clash in fine league form, currently sitting third in the League Two table, and their 39 points after 20 games is the second-best start to a season in the club’s history.
Last time out in the league they were unable to find a way past League Two strugglers Tranmere Rovers, and were made to settle for a 0-0 draw. The Midlands side held 62% possession in the clash, and were certainly the team controlling proceedings on the day. Despite the disappointing result, Northampton are proving
We say: Northampton Town 2-1 Carlisle United
While both sides have proven difficult opponents to take points off in the league this season, Northampton Town’s consistency of performance makes them one of the teams to beat in League Two.
Carlisle have been strong performers away from home this season, however creation of meaningful opportunities has been a problem for Paul Simpson of late, and they may not have the attacking power to outscore their fellow promotion contenders.
