With Wigan Athletic in FA Cup fourth-round action this weekend thanks to their exploits against Premier League side AFC Bournemouth last week, second-placed Blackburn Rovers can narrow the gap on the table-toppers when they face Northampton Town at Ewood Park on Saturday afternoon and we're confident of their chances of collecting all three points in front of their home fans.

Tony Mowbray's men currently sit five points adrift of Wigan in the League One table and they are certainly maintaining the pressure on the league leaders with ten wins and six draws in their last sixteen league matches. They were dumped out of the FA Cup by Championship side Hull City earlier this month and can now concentrate fully on their League One campaign and we'll be backing them to further extend their lengthy unbeaten league run at the expense of Northampton Town this weekend.

The visiting Cobblers have been struggling with consistency this term and this has left them dangerously close to the relegation zone with a mere three points separating them from the bottom three in League One. Theirs has certainly been a mixed bag of results although they have undoubtedly helped their cause no end by picking-up three back-to-back wins over Southend United (3-1), Bradford City (1-2) and MK Dons (2-1). Will they make it a fourth on the bounce when they travel to Ewood Park? We believe that they will head home with something for their troubles.

Blackburn may be flying high in League One but they will certainly be in for a tough test by a Northampton Town side which have been enjoying some excellent results of late. The hosts will be a tough nut to crack however and a share of the spoils looks very much in order at Ewood Park on Saturday afternoon.
