Competition: National League
Market: Over 2.5 goals
Odds: 20/21 @ 888sport
In for what should be a lively contest on Saturday afternoon, Harrogate will welcome Boreham Wood to an empty CNG Stadium with a spot in the National League play-off final up for grabs.
Starting with the hosts, while Harrogate might have been last seen back in March when throwing away a late equalizer against Bromley, the North Yorkshire outfit had enjoyed an eye-catching run prior to the break. Tasting defeat just once since opening 2020 and really starting to shine in the final third before the interruption, Simon Weaver’s men also had one starlet enjoying a stellar end to the campaign. Finding the net against Bromley back in March, former Sunderland academy product Jack Diamond had recorded three goals in his last four National League appearances. Also recording strikes in Harrogate’s back-to-back 3-0 romps against Yeovil and Eastleigh earlier in the year, it is also worth highlighting that Saturday’s hosts had recorded 11 fifth-tier strikes in just their final four outings.
As for the visitors, leaving it late to snatch a 2-1 win over previous title-chasers Halifax in the quarter-finals last week, there is no doubt that the mood in Boreham wood’s camp should be at a high. Remarkably losing just one of their previous 19 National League contests prior to the interruption, Luke Garrard’s side will be smelling an upset this weekend. With leading marksman Kabongo Tshimanga recording 18 National League goals earlier in the year, Boreham Wood also hold an eye-catching record against Saturday’s hosts. Picking up a 2-1 win when the two sides faced off earlier in the season, the Whites have collected seven points over their last three meetings against Harrogate. In a contest that should produce a string of chances, we’re backing over 2.5 goals in North Yorkshire on Saturday afternoon.
