Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Harrogate Town and Grimsby Town go head to head at EnviroVent Stadium in what is expected to be a close League Two encounter. The Sulphurites kicked off 2024 in great manner, with the team beating both Doncaster and Forest Green, while sharing the spoils with Morecambe. Harrogate aim to keep on climbing the standings, but Saturday’s clash will be anything but a walk in the park for Simon Weaver’s troops. Matty Foulds limped off with injury in the last league match, with Warren Burrell likely to step up.
The Mariners, on the other hand, played out a thrilling 5-5 draw with Notts County at the weekend and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Given Harrogate’s signs of improvement, we believe that there is a big value in betting on over 2.5 goals. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team.
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.
