Northampton are one of the teams that constantly traveled between League Two and League One. However, this season, the Cobblers are on pace for a mid-table finish, nowhere near the relegation zone. They are 14th with 50 points, 15 points away from the danger zone, but also 13 points away from the Playoffs. So, a significant change in their standing is pretty unreal, considering they have only seven rounds left. Also, in one moment, it looked like the Cobblers could secure a Playoff spot, but with a terrible five games where they won only two points, they blew the opportunity.

After 14th consecutive years in the Championship, Derby County was relegated to League One in 2021/22. In the following season, they missed the playoffs only by only one point. This year, they are playing a much better season and are one of the favorites to secure a direct promotion. Right now, they are 2nd with 78 points, four away from the 3rd placed Bolton. They are in excellent form, and promotion looks very likely at this stage. 

Northampton Town vs Derby County pick: Derby County to win

Northampton Town are in poor form, winning only two points in five matches, and they mostly faced teams from the middle of the league’s table – much weaker than Derby County. Also, Northampton had very little success against the teams from the top three spots, winning only two points in five matches against those teams.

Derby County won four in a row before this game while keeping a clean sheet in three of those four matches. It seems they are playing their best football when it matters the most, and we consider them a strong favorite against out-of-form Northampton.

In the first h2h game, Derby County completely dominated the match, winning 4:0 at Pride Park. Now, at Sixfields Stadium, we expect a closer match, but once again, a win for the popular Rams.

Derby County

Derby County team news

The team has a problem with injuries, especially up front, as Tyreece John-Jules, Conor Washington, and James Collins are out. In the last game vs Bolton, another offensive player, Dwight Gayle, suffered an injury and had to leave the field after 21 minutes. He will most likely miss the upcoming game as well.

Besides those we mentioned, Callum Elder, Jake Rooney, and Josh Vickers should remain sidelined with injuries.
