Cheltenham Town vs Northampton Town Betting Tips

Goals from Charlie Raglan and Conor Thomas have provided Monday's hosts with a promising two-goal aggregate cushion to protect.

Cheltenham sat fifth in England's fourth tier on 64 points and had a game in hand before play was suspended. Due to the shortened season, their higher points-per-game total compared with Exeter (65pts, 37 games played) meant they faced seventh-placed Northampton in the semi-finals.

So while Exeter lost 1-0 away to Colchester in the other semi-final, Michael Duff's men have taken full advantage of their pre-pandemic form.

They went on a five-match winning streak and only lost twice in 2020, after 13 league games. Their final fixture was a goalless draw against promotion hopefuls Port Vale (March 7), ultimately ending the Valiants' play-off chase.

Northampton, who were a point above Vale after 37 games this term, endured some poor form before the pandemic. After beating strugglers Macclesfield on February 1, they lost six of their next eight matches across all competitions.

With that in mind, perhaps it shouldn't come as a surprise that they struggled in defeat last time out. A three-month hiatus always disrupts momentum and questions will be asked about player fitness.

However, Northampton midfielder Ryan Watson was made to rue his missed penalty after 16 minutes. In his worst display of the season, the 26-year-old had his spot-kick saved by Owen Evans (on-loan from Wigan). Then, he was caught ball-watching on the edge of the area for Thomas' late strike to double their lead.

Cheltenham Town vs Northampton Town Correct Score Predictions

The importance of that late goal cannot be understated, as it's increasingly difficult to see a way back into the tie for Northampton.

Unless they start well and score quickly, it'll be a tough deficit to overcome – especially without conceding themselves. I'm predicting a Northampton win.
