Cheltenham vs Northampton Prediction & Betting tips
Fold the second at Cheltenham against Northampton. After the first leg last Thursday, the second leg is already on the plan. The hosts were able to prevail 2-0 in the first encounter, which means that they stand with one leg in the final of the playoffs for promotion to League One.
However, the match could easily have taken a different course if the Cobblers had used their penalty at the start of the game.
Overall, it was an unfortunate bankruptcy for the seventh of the regular season, because the team of coach Keith Curle was at least equal.
For the upcoming match between Cheltenham and Northampton, the tip now includes goals on both sides and more than two goals in the course of the game. The kickoff on Waddon Road is at 20:00 p.m. on June 22nd.

The Robins last played in League One over ten years ago. In the meantime, they only had to start in the Conference National, but for four years now the club has been at least fourth-class.
Now the team of coach Michael Duff can dream more and more realistic of an ascent, because at least the final entry is within reach. As fourth of the regular season, the direct promotion was just missed anyway. If the season had not been stopped after 37 match days, it would have been enough to get an even better position.
In any case, the form was right: there have been no losses in seven league games, with no less than six successes including the first leg victory. The 1998 FA Trophy winner has above all a strong defense. With 27 goals conceded in 36 league games, the back team showed the best value of all clubs in League Two!
In addition, the offensive is very stable, at least on its own territory: This can be seen from the fact that it hit twice as often in the course of the regular season as in the guest appearances, where the value per league game was just under one goal.
No wonder that only two of the 18 home games were lost this season and the proud number of eleven home wins could be achieved. In view of these points, the odds for at least two hits of the kickers from the beach resort on top are given sufficient value in the encounter between Cheltenham and Northampton.
Northampton can thank the current opponent that it was enough to participate in the playoffs. It was only thanks to the draw by pursuer Port Vale against Cheltenham on the last day of the regular season that the Cobblers were able to defend their lead from one point, as they had also lost out to Mansfield in parallel.
Now, however, there is still a mini chance that after the relegation in 2018 the return to third class can be a success. One reason why it didn’t work out in the first leg with scoring despite sufficient opportunities was personal.
With the suspended Sam Hoskins one of the club’s two top goalscorers was completely missing and his attacking colleague Andrew Williams, who shares this title with him, only came on a short assignment. Now Hoskins is available again, which is why the offensive should be more effective this time.
That she is often able to do this can be seen in the fourth-best goal record after the end of the regular season in Ligue Two. Only the three promoters Swindon, Crewe and Plymouth had scored more.
