Our prediction for this League 1 match:
After sharing the spoils with Blackpool, Oxford United will be aiming to escape the danger zone when they host Northampton Town at their Kassam Stadium. The Yellows aim to put an end to their five-game winless run in the League One, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Northampton. Anyhow, it seems as if Oxford will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways in the English third tier.
The Cobblers head into the match following back-to-back defeats to Doncaster and Crewe, and it is no wonder they are seen as underdogs in the midweek clash. This game could be the turning point for the Yellows, and we predict that they are going to prove their worth on the field. You should bear in mind, though, that Oxford United have not defeated Northampton Town in a competitive match since October 21, 2014.
