Northampton have won three of their last five to climb off the foot of League Two and the Cobblers’ mini-revival has been thanks in no small part to the form of striker Adebayo Akinfenwa.
The powerful front man has bagged five goals in his last four outings, including a brace against Bristol Rovers in midweek and his hot streak could be set to continue as Town entertain Aldershot.
Akinfenwa is a 6/1 shot with bet365 to break the deadlock at the Sixfields Stadium, where he is 15/8 via Paddy Power to notch at any time and as ‘Shots were on a six-match winning run before they went down to Torquay on Tuesday, those prices appeal more than a Northampton triumph at 2/1 (BetVictor).
Another man that could get his name on the scoresheet this weekend is Swindon forward Paul Benson. The Robins marksman has struck six times in seven matches as his side have moved clear at the top of League Two and he’ll relish the challenge of facing second placed Cheltenham this weekend, especially as Mark Yates’ side have conceded a worrying five goals in their last two matches.
Double on Adebayo Akinfenwa and Paul Benson to score at any time – 11/2 (Paddy Power)
