Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Colchester United will be aiming to put an end to their three-game losing run when they take on Harrogate in the League Two round 13. The U’s are eager to get back on course, and it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to do so. Head coach Wayne Brown rested several first-team regulars in the EFL Trophy win over Charlton, but he is going to field the best possible side against the Sulphurites.
Harrogate, on the other hand, have been totally out of form of late, with the team losing six of their last seven league fixtures, and given their poor run on the road (0-1-3), we predict that the hosts are going to emerge triumphant in Saturday’s showdown. Defender Jaheim Headley should keep his place in the starting XI after finding the net for Harrogate in a 2-1 win over Everton U21.
Highlighted Player (Frank Nouble):
Born in Lewisham, London on September 24, 1991, Frank Nouble is a product of the Chelsea football academy. Despite spending his youth career at the capital club, he did not see any game action with the Blues at senior level. Frank Nouble started his senior career at West Ham United, but he made no more than 13 league appearances for the Hammers.
Nowadays, he plays for Colchester United in the League Two. Frank Nouble, who has eight caps with the England U19 team, made his debut with the U’s on August 4, 2018, in a goalless draw with Notts County. He scored his first goal with Colchester United on September 15, 2018, in a 3-0 victory over Cambridge United.
Nouble’s primary position is centre-forward, but he is used as both left and right winger as well. The 190-cm-tall footballer wears the number 45 jersey at Colchester United, and his preferred foot is right.
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.
