Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Scunthorpe will be aiming to make amends for a heavy 5-1 loss to Salford City when they welcome Harrogate to their Sands Venue Stadium on Matchday 39. The Iron are having a season to forget, and, as things stand now, they will almost certainly compete in the National League next term. The rock-bottom hosts experienced all sorts of problems at the back at the weekend, which is probably the main reason why home win should not be considered.
Keith Hill should opt to make changes to the starting XI, with youngsters Sam Burns and Hayden Hackney pushing for a start. Harrogate, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 3-0 loss to Leyton, and they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. Even though defender Lewis Richards should miss out with injury, we are tempted to put our money on the visiting side.
Highlighted Player (Harry Bunn):
Harry Bunn is a Manchester City product who played for the likes of Rochdale, Preston, Oldham Athletic, Crewe Alexandra, Sheffield United and Huddersfield Town on loan before signing a permanent deal with the Terriers in January, 2014. Bunn scored 15 goals in 91 appearances for Huddersfield Town before moving to Bury in a three-year contract in the summer of 2017.
The English attacker joined Bury as he was hungry for a first-team football. Harry Bunn, though, quickly changed the club as he joined Southend United on loan in August, 2018. After he impressed in the 2018/2019 season, the club chiefs decided to sign a permanent deal with Bunn. The Southend United forward was born in Oldham on November 21, 1992.
His main position is left winger, but he is capable of producing fine performances as attacking midfielder as well. The right-footed footballer has a contract with Southend United until June 30, 2020.
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.
