Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Harrogate Town and Scunthorpe United face each other in a highly-anticipated match at EnviroVent Stadium. Harrogate desperately needed a win against Mansfield, and they managed to get one thanks to Calvin Miller’s goal. The newcomers regained a much-needed confidence, but it has to be noted that they suffered a heavy 4-0 loss to Blackpool in the FA Cup at the weekend.
Defender Kelvin Lokko is banned for the hosts, but he should not be sorely missed in the midweek clash. The Iron, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Bolton Wanderers. Scunthorpe United are eyeing their third consecutive away win in the League Two, but beating Harrogate on the road is easier said than done. The hosts aim to move a little closer to the playoffs berth, and we predict that they are going to extend their winning run in the League Two.
