Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Buoyed by a 2-0 win at Exeter, Port Vale will look to keep their 100% record intact when they face newcomers Harrogate on day 3. The Valiants are eyeing their third consecutive clean sheet in League Two, and they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in Saturday’s football game. Despite failing to find the net in the 2-0 win over Exeter, Mark Cullen will be the man to keep an eye on in the home team.
Harrogate, on the other hand, have been playing above expectations at the start of the season, with the team rolling over Southend 4-0, while sharing the spoils with Walsall in the first two league fixtures. Simon Weaver’s men aim to continue impressing on their debut season in the League Two, but seeing that Port Vale are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we do not believe that the visitors are capable of grabbing something from the match.
Highlighted Player (David Amoo):
David Amoo is a professional football player who was born in Southwark, London, England on April 13, 1991. Amoo spent his youth career at the likes of Millwall and Liverpool, but nowadays he plays for League Two side Port Vale.

David Amoo made his League Two debut with Port Vale on August 3, 2019, in a 1-1 draw with Colchester United.
He scored his first goal for the Valiants in a 1-1 draw with Northampton Town seven days later. His primary position is a right winger, but he is often used as both left winger and second striker. David Amoo has dual citizenship (England/Nigeria).
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.
