Salford City vs Harrogate
England – League Two
Date: Friday, 22 January 2021
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Peninsula Stadium.
The Ammies have a game in hand, and they still are placed fifth in the table, just four points below the top-most spot. They also have the best defense in the entire competition, and are the only team to keep the number of conceded goals below 20.
Meanwhile, their opposite number are placed in the bottom tier of the table, and are going through a dismal run at the moment. They are also conceding in plenty, and they have been a mess on the road for almost the whole of the season.
On top of that, Richie Wellens’s men also have a good h2h record against this opponent over the years, and have scored in plenty in the process as well.
Considering these observations, expect Salford to have the upper hand this Friday.
Salford vs Harrogate: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Ammies are on a five-game winning run against this opponent.
- They have scored two or more goals in four of the preceding six clashes.
- Their only defeat against this rival in the past decade had come in the FA Trophy in 2016.
- At this venue, the hosts are on a winning run since 2018, and have scored two or more goals in all these encounters.
Salford vs Harrogate Prediction
Wellen’s men were unbeaten in eight of their previous ten overall games, and they are on a long 14-game unbeaten streak at home. They have also scored two or more goals in nine of their past twelve appearances here.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 14 of their former 18 overall fixtures, and they had also lost six of their preceding nine match-ups.
Importantly, the Ammies are also on a five-fixture winning run in h2h clashes, and they have scored in plenty all through these encounters.
Considering these observations, expect Salford to emerge victorious this Friday at the Peninsula Stadium, and that too convincingly.
