Match Preview: Northampton Town (A)

Latest Team News and Betting Odds Ahead of Fixture

27 October 2017

Fixture | Northampton Town vs Blackpool – Date | 28 October 2017 – Venue | Sixfields Stadium

Blackpool round off the month of October with an away trip to Northampton tomorrow. 

The match kicks-off at the earlier time of 2pm to avoid a direct clash with a rugby union fixture in the town.  

Last Time Out: 

The Seasiders will look to bounce back from a 3-1 home defeat to Wigan Athletic last weekend, which ended the club's unbeaten start to the campaign at Bloomfield Road. 

Northampton picked up their third league victory of the season with a 2-1 win at Gillingham. Danny Powell and Matt Grimes were on target for The Cobblers. 

Team News: 

Skipper Jimmy Ryan hopes to deliver a fitness boost by returning to action for the fixture, though Clark Robertson (foot), Mark Cullen (hamstring) and Kyle Vassell (hamstring) are definitely out. 

Opportunity knocks for a number of other Blackpool players, who will look to step up and have an immediate impact on the side. 

Alex Revell is back in contention for Northampton, having now completed a three-game suspension. Lewis McGugan is fit to play and Brendan Maloney could also come into contention following his recovery for a knee injury. 

Match Betting Odds: 

Northampton Town Win - 19/10 
Draw - 12/5
Blackpool Win - 7/5
