Hull to win
The Tigers made hard working of beating Crewe on Good Friday but, at this stage of the season, it's all about banking the three points. That's what Hull did on Friday and it's what our prediction says they'll do on Easter Monday too. They've lost just one of five at home with Northampton having gone 12 without a win on the road including eight losses in that period.
Under 2.5 goals
When you consider the form of the sides that we mentioned in the first of our tips, it's easy to see this as a runaway win for Hull. We believe it will be comfortable but not a cricket score. Of Hull's last 10 home games only one of them has seen over 2.5 goals; that was 10 games ago. Northampton's away form has seen a few more games with three or more goals in but, even then, six of the last 10 have been under the all important benchmark.
Hull to win to nil
If Hull are going to win comfortably and with the game remaining reasonably low scoring then that means the Tigers will want to be keeping a clean sheet; it's something they've achieved during their last five home wins. Why break the habit against a Northampton team that have failed to net in their last two away matches?

Can Northampton spring a surprise against the league leaders?
These two teams could hardly be in more different places if they wanted. Hull are sitting top of the table with the final stretch of the campaign well and truly under way whilst Northampton are keeping everything crossed that they can keep their heads above water in the fight to stay in League One. Home wins over Shrewsbury and Oxford have helped in that regard but a trip to the KCOM Stadium promises to be a much sterner challenge.
