Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Cheltenham Town and Harrogate square off against each other at Whaddon Road in the last game of the season. Despite losing to Newport at the weekend, the Robins secured automatic promotion to the League One, but they are now on a quest to clinch top position. It has to be noted that Cheltenham Town are after their 13th home win of the season. Harrogate, on the other hand, recorded a thrilling 5-4 win over Cambridge United to give fans some cheer in the season finale.
Since Simon Weaver’s troops are likely to stick to their attacking style of play, a high-scoring affair is on the cards. Anyhow, the league leaders are closer to picking up all three points from the match than the mid-table side. Cheltenham defenders should have Brendan Kiernan at bay as the 28-year-old scored a hat-trick in the triumph over Cambridge United.
Highlighted Player (Chriss Hussey):
Born in Hammersmith, England, Christopher Hussey is an experienced defender who plays for Cheltenham Town in the League Two. After spending his youth career at the likes of Woking and AFC Wimbledon, Hussey continued playing for the Dons at senior level.
He played for a number of English clubs in the past, but, no doubt, the most notable one is Sheffield United. Chris Hussey made seven appearances for the Blades in the League One, but nowadays he is a League Two player. His main position is left-back, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a left midfielder as well.
It has to be noted that he was called up for the England C team as a standby. Christopher Hussey made his Cheltenham Town debut on August 21, 2018 in a 1-1 draw with Macclesfield Town. He scored his first goal with the Robins in a 4-2 loss to Mansfield Town.
Highlighted Team (Harrogate):
Harrogate Town is an English club that welcomes their rivals at Wetherby Road. Opened on August 28, 1920, the venue can hold up to 5,000 spectators (500 seated). The club was founded back in 1914, with the Sulphurties facing Horsforth in their first competitive match on August 30, 1919.
Harrogate Town footballers wear yellow and black shirts when playing at home, while pink is the dominant colour of their away jersey. The Sulphurties did well to win the Whitworth Cup in the 1919/20 season, while the club’s biggest success in the FA Cup came in the 2012/13 when they made it to the second round.
Simon Weaver is one of the most notable footballers who played for Harrogate Town in the past. The team’s manager for the 2020/21 season played for several English clubs, and he has been very successful in the coaching job as well.
