Tranmere vs Northampton Top Picks and Predictions

Everything is on the line for Northampton as they look to secure promotion to League One.

Northampton to Win

The most logical of bets for the first Tranmere vs Northampton prediction as the guest side is the one that needs to win desperately. A victory would see Northampton get promoted without having to play in the playoffs which is too often hard to predict. The positive aspect for the visiting team is that they are a top-four away team in the league this season with ten wins, eight draws, and only four losses which is the lowest mark in the league. They are facing a team that doesn't have anything to play for, and a team they drew earlier during the season.

Under 2.5 Goals

The defending will be the key for Northampton who have one of the best attacks in the league this season. However, if they concede a goal against a very good Tranmere side, things could go awry rather quickly. The first Tranmere vs Northampton match this season ended in a goalless draw and out of the last five games they played against each other, only two went over the line of two and a half goals. Looking at the current form, Tranmere, who is one of the best ‘under' teams in the league, had three matches with fewer than three goals scored from their last five outings while Northampton went in the other direction with four over 2.5 goals outings.

Tranmere vs Northampton Lineups, Preview, and Team News

Tranmere

The hosts had a good run this season and will try to finish the season inside the top ten of the standings. Tranmere fans are disappointed that their team failed to at least be competitive in the latter stage of the season in a fight for promotion playoffs.

Predicted lineup: Hewelt, Cogley, Davies, Turnbull, Bristow, Hendry, Hawkes, Turner-Cooke, Hughes, Saunders, Hemmings.

Northampton

There is no more important match for Northampton than this one. In their final game of the season, they need a win to gain promotion to League One. They could do it even if they lose, but for that to happen, it would also require Stockport County not to win against already relegated Hartlepool, and that is something unlikely to occur. Northampton won three out of their last five matches but lost last week at home to Bradford, so they will need to rectify that situation this time.

Predicted lineup: Burge, Haynes, Dyche, Sherring, Hoskins, Leonard, Hondermarck, McWilliams, Appere, Bowie, Pinnock.

Player to Watch: Sam Hoskins

The most important player for Northampton this season is Sam Hoskins. The versatile right-winger has scored an impressive 21 goals while also assisting seven times as Northampton is close to achieving direct promotion to League One.

Starting lineups

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