Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Leyton Orient and Harrogate face each other in a postponed League Two game at Brisbane Road. Leyton aim to extend their unbeaten run to four games, while Harrogate aim to keep their 100% record in the 2021/22 season intact. Fit-again attacker Harry Smith is widely expected to return to the starting XI after scoring as a substitute in the 1-1 draw with Carlisle.
The visitors, on the other hand, head into the match following a 2-1 win over Barrow. Even though defender Lewis Page is likely to miss the game through injury, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score as Harrogate have been scoring goals for fun at the start of the season. In their last meeting in the English fourth tier the two sides played out a 2-2 draw, which is yet another reason BTTS betting option should be considered.
Highlighted Player (Craig Clay):
After spending his youth career at Chesterfield, Craig Clay continued wearing the Spireites jersey at senior level. The English midfielder made 27 appearances for Chesterfield in the league before signing a deal with York City in the 2013/2014 season.
It has to be noted that he played for the likes of Barrow and Alfreton Town on loan as well before signing the deal with the Minstermen. Born in Nottingham, England on May 5, 1992, Craig Clay was part of Halifax Town, Worksop Town, Grimsby Town, and Motherwell squad as well in the past. Nowadays, the 180-cm tall midfielder plays for Leyton Orient in the League Two, the English fourth tier.
He made his League Two debut with the O’s on August 3, 2019, in a 1-0 win over Cheltenham Town. Craig Clay has one cap with the England C national team as he represented the Three Lions in a 2-0 win over the Ukraine U20 team on March 22, 2016.
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.
