Northampton is currently at 2nd position at the table with 46 points, with one match and three points less than league leaders Plymouth. They will now host Barnet in 25th round of English League Two. Northampton is in great shape, they are coming here after narrow victory over Accrington while before that suffered defeat against 4th placed Portsmouth at home 1:2 and that was their only defeat in last ten rounds. They are playing great offensive football in this campaign and with 39 goals scored are among most effective teams in league. Northampton showed significant improving of their form in comparison to a previous season when they ended at 12th position, now are one of main pretenders for winning direct promotion for the next season. They must go for a victory in order to retain their position and keep up with league leaders, they are for sure able to achieve another three points in front of their fans. Northampton has negative record in duels against Barnet, in last five games they suffered three defeats, one of them was in their first duel in this campaign while achieved two victories and now will for sure go for a victory and try to continue with great results.
Barnet on the other hand is at 18th position at the table with 12 points more than firsts team in relegation zone and they can be satisfied with results as newly promoted side. They won the title in English Vanarama National league and direct promotion in League Two and their main target now is to avoid dropping into relegation zone, so far did a solid job, but as most of newcomers are struggling to find their form and consistency. Barnet suffered defeat in previous round against Cambridge on the road 2:1 while before achieved two victories. They will now for sure give their best to earn some points but it won't be easy against Northampton which improved their form since than. Barnet is also playing good offensive football and so far they scored 35 goals but they must improve their defense, in previous 24 games they conceded amazing 41 goal. All in all Barnet can be satisfied with results so far and if continue with performances like so far for sure will keep their League Two status for the next season.
Northampton is in good shape, they must go for a victory to keep up with league leaders and judging by their form for sure are able to achieve another positive outcome in this campaign, while Barnet showed decent performances but it will be very hard for them to earn some points against one of the strongest sides in league at the moment and I believe that the hosts will achieve victory here.
