Harrogate Town manager Simon Weaver does not have any fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this game owing to a fully injury-free squad available for selection.
Team News: Cambridge United
In an otherwise full-strength group, there’s only the one fitness worry for the Cambridge United gaffer Mark Bonner to be concerned about. Leon Davies (Hip Injury) misses out for this game.
We feel that Cambridge United and Harrogate Town could both end up scoring in what appears to be a good match-up, with little separating these two teams.
Will be interesting to see how this one goes, with a good chance of a draw. We therefore see a very close game with a 1-1 scoreline at the end of the match.
