Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Buoyed by a 3-1 win over Walsall, Harrogate will look to give fans yet another reason for celebration when the take on Salford City on Matchday 17. Harrogate quickly bounced back from a 1-0 loss to Bristol Rovers, with the team keeping their automatic promotion hopes alive. Simon Weaver’s troops aim to regain their spot in top three, but the game against Salford City will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts.
The Lions, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team failing to win the previous four league fixtures. Salford City do not seem to be at their sharpest at the moment, and seeing that Harrogate regained a much-needed confidence at the weekend, home win should be considered. Luke Armstrong, who scored his ninth goal of the season in the triumph over Walsall, will be the man to watch in the home team.
Highlighted Player (Calvin Miller ):

His preferred foot is left, and he wears the No. 19 at Harrogate Town. He has a contract with the Sulphurites which should expire in June 2021. Calvin Miller’s preferred foot is left.
Highlighted Team (Salford):
Founded during the Second World War (1940) as Salford Central, the League Two side play their home games at Moor Lane. The stadium, which was opened in 1978 and renovated in 2019, can hold up to 5,108 spectators. The Lions wear red jerseys and white shorts when playing in front of home fans, while white and black are the dominant colours of their away kit.
Salford City secured promotion to the League 2 at the end of the 2018/19 as they defeated Flyde 3-0 in the National League play-offs final. The match was played at Wembley Stadium, with Touray, Pergianni, and Dieseruvwe scoring for the Lions.
In the 1977/78 season Salford City won their first Manchester Premier Cup trophy, with the team repeating the success the following year. Bury are seen as the club’s main rivals, but their rivalry with the likes of Oldham and Rochdale is pretty big as well.
