Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Saturday’s football game at EnviroVent Stadium pits together Harrogate and Barrow, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table even though only two points are separating them in the standings. The Sulphurites desperately needed a win against Morecambe and they managed to get one, with the team putting an end to their three-match losing run in the League Two.
However, home win should not be considered as Harrogate suffered an embarrassing 8-0 loss to Blackburn Rovers in the EFL Cup round 2. Attacking midfielder Samuel Folarin is likely to return to the starting XI after coming off the bench in the midweek defeat. The Bluebirds, on the other hand, head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Wrexham. Harrogate and Barrow seem to be evenly matched at the moment; therefore, we are tempted to put our money on draw.
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.
