Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Stevenage welcome Harrogate to their Broadhall Way in a highly-anticipated League Two game. The Boro are undefeated in the previous four league fixtures, meaning that the hosts are high on spirits ahead of the visit of Harrogate. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Luke Norris, who has been scoring goals for fun of late. The Sulphurites, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 3-0 win over Oldham, with the team bouncing back from a heavy 4-0 loss to Newport.
Experienced attacker Jack Muldoon, who scored a hat-trick in the last league match, is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back-line. Considering that Harrogate regained a much-needed confidence at the weekend, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visiting team. You should know that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of the previous three meetings between the two sides.
Highlighted Player (Jake Taylor):
Jake Taylor is a product of the Reading football academy who plays for Exeter City in the League Two. Taylor spent his youth career at Reading, and he continued wearing the blue and white shirt at senior level.
After scoring two goals in 31 appearances with the Royals in the league, the English footballer spent several seasons on loan at the likes of Aldershot Town, Exeter City, Cheltenham Town, Crawley Town, Leyton Orient, and Motherwell. In 2016 Jake Taylor returned to Exeter City, signing a permanent deal with the St James Park outfit.
Despite being born in Ascot, England, on December 1, 1991, Taylor represents Wales on the international stage. He has ten caps with the Wales U21 team, and he made his debut with the Dragons at the senior level in a 2-1 win over Cyprus on October 13, 2014. His primary position is central midfielder.
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.
