Sutton vs Northampton Best Predictions and Top Odds

Northampton is looking to lock up their place in League One for next season, but the battle is as interesting as ever with five teams fighting for two remaining spots.

Northampton to Win

With the confidence for Sutton players as low as it was this season, Northampton could take advantage of that fact and make a significant step toward promotion. This Sutton vs Northampton prediction relies on the stakes for both teams as the guest side is close to achieving the ultimate goal. Northampton's away form has been one of the best in the league, they have accumulated 35 points in 21 matches when playing outside their home stadium. For Sutton, their three losses in a row mean that there is only a theory that holds them in a possible positive outcome toward a playoff promotion spot. Their first season's meeting ended with a 2-2 draw.

Both Teams to Score

History recognizes only three Sutton vs Northampton matches and two of them ended in a draw without BTTS being covered. However, the first game of the current season ended with both teams getting on the score sheet on a couple of occasions. Looking at their past five league matches, both teams had two games with BTTS. However, we are going the other way for this pick because of either team's capabilities of scoring in their own right. Sutton didn't score at home in their last three matches, and it is time for that to change.

Team Information, Sutton vs Northampton Lineups, and Preview

Sutton

Only a couple of weeks ago, Sutton players thought they had a good chance of making it to the promotion playoffs stage of the competition which would give them a shot at promotion to League One. But, in a short time, they managed to lose three times in a row and those hopes have vanished. Sutton will be looking to spoil, however, a celebration for their next opponent whose chances are high for direct promotion.

Expected lineup: Rose, Hart, Rowe, Kizzi, Boldewijn, Neufville, Smith, Beautyman, Ajiboye, Angol, Bugiel.

Northampton

They lost only once in their last five games, and are maintaining a slim lead at the second spot and in front of their main competitors. Five teams are fighting for two remaining places for direct promotion to League One, and Northampton needs to win games against teams that don't have anything to play for at this stage of the season.

Expected lineup: Burge, Sowerby, Guthrie, Norman, Hoskins, Hondermarck, Leonard, Haynes, Pinnock, Bowie, Appere.

Starting Lineups

Starting lineups are usually released 60 minutes before kick-off.

Player to Watch: Sam Hoskins

There is no more important player for Northampton than Sam Hoskins whose form has been terrific the entire season putting him among the best strikers in League Two. He has scored 20 goals in 36 appearances which is the best mark on the team just as much assisting on seven occasions which is also a top stat for Northampton.
