Competition: League Two
Market: Cheltenham Town win
Odds: 21/20 @ Bet 365
Knowing that three points on Tuesday could see them move within touching distance of the automatic spots, Cheltenham will welcome Northampton to the Jonny-Rocks Stadium in midweek.
Starting with the hosts, picking up a 1-0 win over Mansfield on Saturday and now winning their last three matches on the bounce, Cheltenham suddenly find the mood in their camp at a season-high. Now sat within touching distance of the top-three and tasting defeat just twice since Boxing Day, fans around Gloucestershire will undoubtedly be most impressed by their side’s continued success on home soil. Along with holding the best defensive tally of any side in England’s fourth-tier, Michael Duff’s men are enjoying a stunning five-match winning run at the Johnny-Rocks Stadium. Now seen to be a leading contender to at least land a play-off finish this season, there is no doubt that Cheltenham should be looking to make a statement in midweek.
As for the visitors, while Northampton may have managed to pick up what was a much-needed 2-0 win over fellow promotion hopefuls Exeter on Saturday, it does not cover what has been a worrying February for Keith Curle’s side. Losing four of their last five and now only just hanging onto their spot in the top-seven, fans around the East Midlands have also seen their side hit with back-to-back defeats on the road. Starting to show some signs of fatigue since opening the New Year in eye-catching fashion, it should be noted that Northampton were hit with a 3-1 defeat when they last made the trip to the Johnny-Rocks Stadium. Given the recent gulf in class between the two sides, we’re backing a home victory on Tuesday night.
