Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Harrogate will look to extend their winning run to four games when they take on Tranmere in the last game of the year. The Sulphurites have been producing excellent showings in festive fixtures and, as a result, the bookies see them as slim favourites to beat the Rovers on home soil. Simon Weaver is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated the Accy Stanley on Boxing Day.
Tranmere, on the other hand, aim to build on a thrilling 5-1 win over Salford City. As Nigel Adkins’ men are likely to stick to their attacking style of play, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. As for the visiting side, both Kristian Dennis and Jean Belehouan remain on the sidelines with injuries. In their last meeting at the venue the two sides played out a 1-1 draw.
Highlighted Player (Jordan Turnbull):
Born in Trowbridge, England, on October 30, 1994, Jordan Turnbull is a professional footballer who plays for Northampton Town as a defender. Turnbull is a product of Swindon Town football academy, but in 2007 he was spotted by Southampton scouts.
Despite signing a professional contract with Southampton, he did not see any game action with the Saints at senior level. The English footballer made no fewer than 86 league appearances for Swindon Town during his loan spell with the Robins, and in 2016 he signed a contract with Coventry City.
Jordan Turnbull spent the 2017/2018 on loan Partick Thistle before joining Northampton Town permanently. Speaking of his international career, the Northampton centre-back has two caps with the England U19 team, and one cap with the England U20. Jordan Turnbull, who is used as a left-back as well, wears the number 6 jersey at Northampton Town. His preferred foot is left.
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.
