Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Northampton Town and Charlton Athletic go head to head at Sixfields Stadium on day 8 of the 2020/21 League One campaign. The Cobblers aim to build on a 2-1 win over Swindon Town, but beating the in-form capital club behind closed doors is easier said than done. Winger Danny Rose, who opened his goalscoring account in the midweek clash, is likely to keep his place in the starting XI for the hosts.
The Red Robins, on the other hand, have been impressive at the back of late, with the team eyeing their fourth consecutive clean sheet in the League One. Considering that the visitors are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in Saturday’s clash, we believe that punters can find value in betting on under 2.5 goals. It has to be noted that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of Charlton’s last five games in all competitions.
