Rochdale vs Northampton – Free Betting Tips, Odds, & Predictions

Rochdale step into the encounter following the 2-1 loss against Salford City in which the team was unable to make much of an impact apart from a late penalty. Northampton had to settle for a goalless draw against Walsall in which there were not too many clear-cut opportunities for both teams.

Draw

Northampton have been striving for consistency – especially when going in the final third of the pitch – and they have been unable to take advantage of Leyton Orient dropping points in the last few weeks. However, Northampton should have enough in store against a Rochdale outfit who have suffered four consecutive losses. The relegation-threatened outfit are expected to come in with a slightly improved performance after their string of losses. This prediction expects a stalemate in this match.

Total goals under 2.5

There have been less than 2.5 goals in four out of the recent five matches involving Northampton. The Cobblers have averaged less than a goal per game in the last six matches and they have an identical scoring record with Rochdale, who are several places down the table. The big difference between the two teams has been in the defence department, where Northampton have a lot of strength and confidence. This prediction anticipates less than 2.5 goals in the match.

Both teams to score – no

The two teams have been struggling for victories in the last six matches. The likelihood of witnessing another disappointing scoring encounter between the two clubs is quite high. This match may feature one of the teams failing to score with Northampton being very strong at the back.

Rochdale vs Northampton Match Preview, Analysis, and Latest Team News

Rochdale

Rochdale have now dropped to the bottom of the table following the latest set of results. Gillingham picking up positive results has not been good for Rochdale, who welcome Sam Graham and Ebanks-Landell back from suspension.

Northampton

Northampton have been unable to make the most of the first and second outfits dropping points in the last few weeks. Northampton are not significantly better compared to Rochdale in terms of recent form. Manager Jon Brady brings his team without Ali Koiki due to suspension, while Aaron McGowan and Akinwale Odimayo are doubtful because of injuries. This could create a significant shakeup in the defensive line up.
