Our prediction for this League 2 match:
After playing out a goalless draw with Harrogate at the weekend, Stevenage will be aiming to return to winning ways when they take on Hartlepool at Broadhall Way on Saturday afternoon. The Boro have been struggling in front of goal of late, with the team failing to win the previous eight games in all competitions, but the bookies still see them as slim favourites to win the match.
Hartlepool, on the other hand, have been playing some low-scoring games in recent weeks. There have been under 2.5 goals in each of the Pools’ previous five league fixtures, and, taking everything into account, a close encounter is on the horizon at Broadhall Way. Luke Molyneux opened his goal-scoring account at the weekend, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay.
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.
