Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Buoyed by back-to-back wins over Forest Green and Bolton, Tranmere will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Harrogate at their Prenton Park. The Super Whites are on a three-game winning run at home in all competitions, and they are surely capable of beating Harrogate on home soil. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be veteran forward James Vaughan, who has netted 12 goals in the League Two so far this term.
Harrogate, on the other hand, have yet to record a win in 2021. The newcomers have been totally unpredictable in their debut season in the League Two, and seeing that Tranmere have been impressive at home ground of late, we are tempted to put our money on Keith Hill’s troops. In the first half off the season the Super Whites defeated the Sulphurites thanks to Otis Khan’s goal.
Highlighted Player (Jay Spearing):
After impressing in Liverpool’s youth academy, Jay Spearing made 30 appearances in the league for the first team. However, the English midfielder was playing below expectations in the Premier League and, as a result, he was sent on loan to Leicester City in 2010.
Spearing played for Bolton Wanderers on loan as well and in 2013 he signed a permanent deal with the Trotters. He scored three goals, while providing six assists for his teammates in 37 appearances for Bolton in the 2016/2017 League One campaign and, no doubt, he helped the club secure promotion to the Championship.
Jay Spearing, who was born in Wallasey, England on November 25, 1988, has yet to make his England debut. His main position is defensive midfield, but he is capable of playing as both central and left midfielder as well. Jay Spearing has a deal with Bolton Wanderers which expires in the summer of 2021.
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.
