Our prediction for this League 2 match:
EnviroVent Stadium will host Tuesday’s League Two game between Harrogate and Accrington, the two teams who defeated Grimsby and Walsall respectively in their last league matches. The Sulphurites are eyeing their third consecutive league win and they must be high on confidence ahead of the Boxing Day clash. Simon Weaver is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated the Mariners at the weekend.
The Accy Stanley, on the other hand, aim to climb to the playoffs berth. As the visitors will go for a victory in the midweek clash as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. John Coleman has no fresh injury worries ahead of the trip to North Yorkshire. It has to be noted that Accrington recorded a thrilling 5-3 win over Harrogate in the previous meeting between the two sides.
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.
