Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Harrogate and Doncaster face each other at EnviroVent Stadium in what is expected to be a close League Two encounter. The Sulphurites have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team beating Accrington, losing to Tranmere, while sharing the spoils with Morecambe. With no fresh injury worries to report, head coach Simon Weaver is unlikely to make changes to the team that shared the spoils with the Shrimps.
The Donny, on the other hand, kicked off 2024 with a thrilling 3-0 win over MK Dons, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence. As Harrogate are eager to return to winning ways in the League Two, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Joe Ironside, who has found his goal-scoring touch of late.
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.
