Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Following a 1-1 draw with Sutton, MK Dons will look to return to winning ways when they face Harrogate in the League Two round 10. The Dons aim to climb to the playoffs berth, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. Graham Alexander has no fresh selection worries ahead of Saturday’s encounter and he is unlikely to make changes to the team that came from behind to share the spoils with Sutton at the weekend.
The Sulphurites, on the other hand, recorded a very important 3-2 win over Salford City on Matchday 9, with the team climbing to 18th place in the standings. Harrogate, though, are not regarded as good travellers and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling MK Dons’ party at Stadium MK. It has to be noted that the two clubs meet for the first time in the English fourth tier.
Highlighted Player (Mo Eisa):
Born on the 12th of July, 1994, in Khartoum, Sudan, Mo Eisa is a Sudanese professional footballer who plays for Peterborough United in the third tier of English Football. The 6ft tall striker/ winger is a Pro Touch Soccer Academy product.
The initial years of his career were spent playing non-league football with teams like Dartford, Leatherhead, and Greenwich Borough, the latter for whom he scored over 50 goals in 100 appearances. On the 7th of July, 2017, Eisa signed a contract with League Two outfit Cheltenham Town and made his league debut on the 5th of August, 2017.
A prolific season with the Robins earned him the Supporters' Player Of The Year and the Players' Player Of The Year awards at the end of the season. For the 18/19 season, the 25-year-old joined Championship side Bristol for a brief stint before returning to League One with Peterborough for the following season on a four-year contract.
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.
