Scunthorpe United v Northampton Town FA cup replay after the goalless draw at Northampton sounds like a difficult task for Scunthorpe. The initial match showed little conviction from both teams to win and the 0-0 final result was a legit ending score. However, it is noted that Northampton was a bit unlucky, having hit the woodwork twice. Northampton is currently 19th in league has full intention to play and win this 2nd leg of this match up, especially knowing the fact that Scunthorpe has a midfield injury crisis. Indeed, the latter team will be without Devonte Redmond, Andrew Crofts, Neal Bishop, Luke Williams,Sam Mantom and Clayton Lewis (international duty).


It is quite weird that Scunthorpe comes as favorites for this fixture. Northampton was the better side in the first leg. Scunthorpe's main objective this season is to get out of league 1 and considering its potential chances to do it this term (currently 5th in league), the manager, Alexander, will not waste his chances in attaining his team's main goal. His statement recently: "We’re going to have to change a couple of positions because of players unavailable to us, so we’ll try and work on that to make sure we’re in the best possible place when we play the game,” Alexander told the club website." was not convincing at all and given the number of unavailable players, Northampton definitely has an edge over Scunthorpe. Northampton does not have a lot of important players out, with Alex Revel, Leon Barnett and Aaron Phillips could all still be out, though, Matthew Grimes is set to return.


For all these reasons mentionned, I strongly believe that Northampton has a strong incentive to win this game, or at least handle a draw until they have a chance to win in extra time.


So Northampton + 1 handicap offered at 2.30 at bet365 is more than a bargain.


Good luck
