Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Blundell Park will host Tuesday’s League Two game between Grimsby Town and Harrogate Town. Grimsby failed to kick off the new season in style, but their recent form is surely giving fans a reason for optimism. The Mariners proved their worth in back-to-back wins over Cheltenham and Leyton, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Harrogate.
The newcomers, on the other hand, have been performing above expectations in the 2020/21 season, and, as a result, they are sitting in the seventh place in the standings. Harrogate aim to extend their winning run to three matches, but beating Grimsby Town on the road is easier said than done. Since both sides have been in a fine form of late, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. In their last meeting in a competitive match the two teams played out a 2-2 draw.
Highlighted Player (Sean Scannell):
Sean Scannell is a winger who plays for Huddersfield Town. The Irish footballer is capable of playing up front as well and he began his senior career at Crystal Palace, before penning a three-year contract with Huddersfield Town.
The English player, who was born in Croydon on 17 September 1990, made 25 outings for Huddersfield in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign, scoring one goal for the club. Sean Scannell has 10 caps for Republic of Ireland Under-21 side, but he has yet to make his debut for the senior team. Scannell was named Republic of Ireland Young Player of the Year in 2007, and in 2008 he was Crystal Palace’s Young Player of the Year.
His contract with Huddersfield Town expires on 30 June, 2019 and his highest market value was €1 million back on 8 January, 2009. Sean Scannell started his youth career in Addiscombe Corinthians, but he played for Crystal Palace youth teams as well.
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.
