On paper, the first thing that Northampton vs Accrington Stanley tells you is that Saturday’s guests should be confident of picking up an upset on the road.

Securing a 1-0 win against Barrow on EFL Trophy duties in midweek, Stanley find themselves on the verge of breaking into the top-half of the League One table and they have collected nine points over their last four third-tier outings.

Looking to pick up just their second victory at the PTS Academy Stadium, you might be interested to know that an away win in the Midlands is priced at 13/8 with EnergyBet.

Northampton’s attacking headache

While Northampton might have managed to secure their spot in League One at an empty Wembley over the summer, the Cobblers have struggled to adjust to life in England’s third-tier.

Hit with a shock 2-1 defeat away at non-league outfit Oxford City in the FA Cup last time out, Keith Curle’s men have managed to win just a pair of their last eight matchups across all competitions.

Even more concerning for Saturday’s hosts, along with just a single home victory to their name since opening the 2020/2021 campaign, Northampton have failed to find the net in four of their last five matchups in the Midlands. Curle’s side are priced at 9/4 with Unibet to draw another blank this weekend.

Accrington’s play-off charge

Although Accrington might have dealt with a string of off-field issues due to the current climate, Stanley find themselves holding several games in hand and with their sights set on trying to mount a shock play-off charge.

Priced as high as 9/1 with 888sport to clinch a top-six finish this season, John Coleman’s men landed a 1-0 win against Barrow on EFL Trophy duties in midweek and they are enjoying a recent League One bounce.

Including an impressive 1-0 win against fellow promotion chasers Fleetwood last time out in England’s third-tier, Saturday’s guests have collected nine points from their last four appearances and will make the trip to Northampton with the mood in their camp at a high.
