Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Port Vale play host to Harrogate at their Vale Park in the League Two round 8. Port Vale did well to make amends for a 3-2 loss to Rochdale, with the team beating Swindon on the road in their last league match. The Valiants aim to move closer to the playoffs berth, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Harrogate. Ben Garrity scored a brace in the triumph over Swindon, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay.
Harrogate, on the other hand, aim to remain undefeated in the 2021/22 League Two campaign. Since the visitors will go for a win in Saturday’s game as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. The attacking partnership of Muldoon and Armstrong has been in a perfect working order of late, and they are likely to make life difficult for the opposition back-line.

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.

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.
