Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Harrogate play host to Colchester at their EnviroVent Stadium on day 32 of the 2023/2024 League Two campaign. Following three consecutive league wins, the Sulphurites shared the spoils with Stockport County at the weekend to stay in the playoffs race. Harrogate have recorded three wins in the previous four home matches, which is fuelling fans with optimism ahead of the visit of Colchester. Abraham Odoh limped off with injury in the last league fixture, with Jeremy Sivi likely to step up.
The U’s, on the other hand, aim to extend their unbeaten run to five games. Colchester United, though, have already suffered ten defeats on the road this term and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Harrogate’s party at EnviroVent Stadium. It has to be noted that Colchester left-back Al-Amin Kazeem has joined Galway United on loan.
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.
