Derby vs Northampton Match Preview
Derby County host Northampton for a replay of their FA Cup clash after being held to a goalless draw at PTS Academy Stadium in late January, where Philip Cocu’s men struggled to break down the League Two rivals and Jack Marriott being pulled down as he went clear on goal was their best chance.
Rams have been more confident at Pride Park and they’ll surely hope to show off here once again, after beating Stoke (4-0) on Friday, which was their fourth home win in a row. Wayne Rooney found the net for the second time in a row too, together with Waghorn, Martin, and Bogle, and fans will hope they can build on the performance.
Northampton, on the other hand, beat Scunthorpe (3-0) and Macclesfield (0-1) in two League Two outings since, keeping their third clean sheet in a row. They extended an unbeaten streak of nine since late December and Keith Curle has ground to build on, with great team spirits and a top 3 spot under their noses.
Cobblers have had more trouble on the road through most part of the campaign, though, and certainly have a lot to prove in search of an upset here. They’ve been conceding goals on the regular and seeing Derby rediscover their fine form in the final third will be all the more worrying at this point.
We will thus back Derby to capitalize on their fine form in front of the home fans once again, backing them to snatch a ticket to the 5th Round in a Home win to Nil at 6/5 with bet365 and hoping to see another narrow contest in the making.
Indeed, Northampton have been tough to break down and will want more of the same now. Still, this could restrict their moves forward and we feel this should mean few goals between them once again – as we go for Under 2.5 Goals FT at Evens with BetVictor.
