Harrogate Town enter this game following on from a 1-1 League Two drawn match vs Bradford City.
The only player to score from Harrogate Town was Matty Daly (78'). Jamie Walker (95') scored for Bradford City.
It’s been a rare occasion in recent games that Harrogate Town have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that Harrogate Town have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 matches, giving up 12 goals during that time.
Since a losing effort in their last game against Notts County in League Two action, Salford City and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
David McGoldrick (37') and Dan Crowley (63') scored for Notts County.
The attacking players from Salford City have been starved of goals over their previous 6 clashes, netting the poor return of just 3. In those fixtures, The Ammies have also seen the overall goal aggregate of their opponents equal 11. We will see whether or not that trend will be continued on here.
