After a sticky patch in which they lost three out of four in League Two, Crawley have carded three consecutive victories and they’re 6/5 favourites with Stan James to make it four in a row at Northampton.
However, the Cobblers, 13/5 outsiders, have managed back-to-back wins themselves and can make life difficult for the well-fancied visitors and the draw looks the best bet at Sixfields, at 5/2 (Betfred).
It seems inevitable that both teams will score, an outcome Blue Square offer at 4/6 and the man to follow in terms of contributing to the goal tally is Crawley’s Tyrone Barnett. The Red Devils’ top scorer has seven already this term, with three in his last three and Paddy Power post 6/1 against him breaking the deadlock here.
Bradford have improved under Phil Parkinson but have not seen the rewards in terms of league points, however, buoyed by their midweek Johnstone’s Paints Trophy success at Huddersfield, the Bantams can bag their first win under their current boss, Ladbrokes posting 6/4 against them beating a Torquay side winless in five.
Aldershot meanwhile, also catch the eye, they’re 10/11 (William Hill) as they entertain poor travellers Macclesfield.
Tyrone Barnett to score first – 6/1 (Paddy Power)
Bradford and Aldershot to win – 7/2 ()
