- Computer Predicted Score: Northhampton Town 1-1 Derby County
Northampton Town have had an entirely decent season up until now, winning 13 of their 28 games and occupying the sixth position at the moment, with only two points separating them from the League One Promotion zone. The club hasn’t generally had a stagnation so far this year, continuously losing games only once back in October. The Cobblers has a pretty good scoring record of 1.46 goals per game this season although lately they’ve seen to improve their attacking style, and thus improving their scoring statistics to 1.8 goals per game. They’ve performed great in defence as well, having conceded 31 goals in 28 matches.
Derby County hasn’t managed to satisfy the fan’s hopes so far this season, winning and losing nine games up until now. But the latest reorganisation of the game pattern has helped the Rams to win three matches out of the latest four. This has seen them pull away frorrelegation zone and and feel themselves solid in the middle of the table. Derby has succeeded to beat the Premier League opponent in the last round, winning against Crystal Palace 1-0 and that brings them more confidence in the next match with a lower rank rival. Their attacking potential has been well underneath the level it should be, with the team scoring 1.03 goals in average per game up until now and they’ll have to improve this statistic today to come up to the next round.

Northampton Town vs Derby County Prediction
One could perhaps predict an obvious success for Derby County since the guests being two leagues higher than the hosts but in fact this game can be quite tough. Northhampton, though having a lower class, plays more confidently in their league and has a home advantage that’s why we predict both teams to score in this game. The end result for this game in our opinion will be a draw. 1-1 for Northhampton vs Derby
