Harrogate Town Preview

Steve Ball's side aiming for second home win of the week

23 October 2020

Colchester United will be looking to build on their winning performance against Forest Green Rovers from Tuesday night, by welcoming Harrogate Town this weekend.

Fourth placed Harrogate Town are the visitors to the JobServe Community Stadium this weekend, for the first ever meeting between the two sides. 

It is Harrogate's first season in the EFL after promotion via the play-offs from the National League last season, with Simon Weaver's side making a positive start to life in the fourth tier of English football. 

The U's picked up their second win of the season in their last game, when Forest Green came to the JCS, and Steve Ball's side will be looking to build on that positive result this weekend. 

"On Tuesday night we showed real resilience in the defensive area, and that will give the lads so much confidence" - Steve Ball

"I've been really impressed with Harrogate - good manager, good structure to themselves. They've kept a lot of the team that got them up from last year, and they work hard for eachother."

"I watched their game against Bradford from last week, and their win against Grimsby, and they are a very good side. They've shown that from their results to date."

"We are going to look to hurt them in the areas that we can, and I do think we can, but they will come here on Saturday full of confidence and we will have to be at our best to beat them."
