Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Crawley Town and Harrogate face each other in a postponed League Two game at the People’s Pension Stadium. Crawley have been in a fine form of late, with the team beating both Carlisle United and Colchester in the previous two league fixtures. The Red Devils aim to move closer to the playoffs berth, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Harrogate in Tuesday’s clash.
The visitors, on the other hand, suffered their first defeat of the season at Port Vale at the weekend, and given the number of absentees in the away side, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. Talented attacker Jack Diamond is sidelined through suspension, while both Alexander Pattison and Lewis Page are out of contention with injuries. In their last meeting in the League Two Harrogate defeated Crawley 2-1, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
Highlighted Player (Lewis Young ):
Lewis Young is an experienced defender who plays for Crawley Town in the League Two. Young has a very interesting football career as he played for eight English clubs before joining Crawley Town.

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.
