Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Sands Venue Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Scunthorpe United and Harrogate. The Iron aim to extend their winning run to four games, and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their fourth consecutive clean sheet in the League Two. Since the hosts are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence against Harrogate, a low-scoring game is on the cards.
The newcomers, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Carlisle United. Harrogate have been playing some low-scoring games of late, and, taking everything into account, we are unlikely to see goals galore at Stands Venue Stadium. Even though Scunthorpe crushed Harrogate 5-2 at EnviroVent Stadium earlier in the process, we are tempted to put our money on under 2.5 goals as the Iron have been impressive at the back in recent weeks.
Highlighted Player (Jordan Clarke):
Jordan Clarke is a professional footballer who plays for League Two club Scunthorpe United. Born on November 19, 1991, Clarke is a product of the Coventry City football academy. He continued playing for the Sky Blues at senior level and after scoring 4 goals in 125 appearances for the club, he moved to Scunthorpe United in 2015.
It has to be noted that he had a short loan spell with Yeovil Town as well during the 2014/15 season. Jordan Clarke made his Scunthorpe debut in the League Two in a 2-0 loss to Swindon Town on August 3, 2019. Clarke’s main position is right-back, but he is used as both centre and left back as well.
Since he was a very talented player, Jordan Clarke earned call-ups for both England U19 and U20 teams. Speaking of his personal life, you should know that the Scunthorpe United defender attended Coundon Court School in Coundon, Coventry.
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.
