>The Cobblers have been placed as early third favourites for the League Two championship next season. So early pressure already begins to build on the players before the Football League season is officially ended by today’s Championship playoff final.
Stuart Gray’s men have been placed behind Shrewsbury Town and Bradford City as third favourites for the title next season with the Shrews narrowly losing out to Gillingham in the Playoff final on Saturday afternoon and Bradford looking strong cadidates after missing out this time around.
A lot will depend on the squad Gray has to choose from of course but we’ve never been good with being favourites and we’re sure for a hell of a ride whatever happens in 2009/10.
Here’s the full odds for the League Two Championship next season from bet365…
Dag & Red 22/1
Lincoln City 25/1
Notts County 28/1
Port Vale 33/1
Burton Albion 40/1
Accrington Stanley 66/1
