Our prediction for this League 2 match:
After rolling over Forest Green 3-0 in their last league match, Stevenage will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Harrogate on Matchday 34. The Boro have been impressive at the back of late, with the team eyeing their fourth consecutive clean sheet in the League Two. Stevenage are likely to adopt a defence-minded approach in Saturday’s football match, meaning that we are unlikely to see goals galore at Broadhall Way.
A man to watch in the home team will be Danny Newton, who scored a brace against Forest Green. Harrogate, on the other hand, recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Barrow on Tuesday evening, with the team extending their winning run to three games. Since they managed to keep a clean sheet in each of their previous three league fixtures, a low-scoring affair is on the cards at Broadhall Way.
Highlighted Player (Scott Cuthbert ):
Born in Alexandria, Scotland on June 15, 1987, Scott Cuthbert is a defender who plays for Stevenage in the League Two. Cuthbert is a product of the Celtic football academy, but he did not see any game action with the Hoops in the Scottish Premiership.
After ending his loan spells with Livingston and St. Mirren, the Scottish footballer joined Swindon Town in 2009 where he quickly established himself as a first-team regular. After scoring five goals in 80 appearances for the club, Scott Cuthbert moved to Leyton Orient before the start of the 2011/12 season.
After almost a five-year spell with the Brisbane Road outfit, the right-footed defender joined Stevenage in the summer of 2018, and he has been playing for the Posh ever since. He made his Stevenage debut in a 2-2 draw with Tranmere Rovers in the 2018/19 season opener. At the end of the campaign the Scottish footballer was named the club’s Player of the Year.
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.
