Harrogate Town v Gillingham

Sky Bet League Two

The EnviroVent Stadium

Saturday March 4th

Kick-Off, 3pm


Team News:

Alex MacDonald’s availability will be a last-minute call as he deals with an illness, while Robbie McKenzie is unlikely to be involved as he struggles with a groin issue. Timothee Dieng, who is recovering from a head injury, might miss Saturday. However, the hope is he could play on Tuesday.


New signing Lewis Page, who signed on Thursday, is available for selection but may have to wait until Tuesday to be a part of the squad.

Stephen Dooley, Kayne Ramsey and Pete Jameson are all long-term absentees for Harrogate. Alex Pattison, who missed the midweek draw against Northampton, could return in time for Saturday.


Manager Comments:

Simon Weaver - “We’ve got to set a high tempo, like we did on Tuesday night. We have been able to a lot recently, other than the Swindon game. It’s going to be a big battle.”


Neil Harris - "We are a team moving in the right direction but Harrogate is a tough place to go.

"We are in a really good place, mentally. We have come so far in a short space of time."



Previous Meetings:

The two clubs have only met once before, and that was in the reverse fixture earlier in the campaign. Harrogate came out on top thanks to goals from Matthew Daly and Alex Pattison.
