Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Stevenage and Port Vale face each other at Broadhall Way in what is expected to be one of the most interesting games of Saturday’s program. Stevenage have been having their ups and downs at the start of the season, with the team beating both Barrow and Bristol Rovers, while losing to Bradford City. The Boro experienced all sorts of problems in the 4-1 loss to the Bantams, with Scott Cuthbert limping off with injury in the first half.
The experienced defender is a major doubt, and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-offs. The Valiants, on the other hand, have been playing some low-scoring games at the start of the season. Since Port Vale have yet to find the net in the new League Two campaign, a low-scoring affair is on the horizon at Broadhall Way. In their last meeting in the English fourth tier the two teams played out a goalless draw.
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 (Port Vale):
Nicknamed the Valiants, Port Vale are a professional club that compete in the League Two. Port Vale welcome their rivals at Vale Park, and they wear white and black kit when playing in front of home fans. Yellow, on the other hand, is the dominant colour of their away kit.
The Valiants’ home ground, which was built in 1950, can hold up to 49,768 people. Championship side Stoke City are seen as one of the club’s fiercest rivals, but their rivalry is pretty healthy. The two teams first met on December 2, 1882, with the Potters emerging triumphant (1-0).
The Valiants maintain a rivalry with fellow League 2 club Crewe Alexandra as well. Speaking of the club’s titles, it has to be noted that Port Vale have won Football League Trophy on two occasions (1993, 2001). A 9-1 win over Chesterfield from September 24, 1932 is the club’s biggest triumph.
