PREVIEW: North Yorkshire beckons on Tuesday

United face Harrogate in league action

7 November 2022

It's the quick trip over to Harrogate for the Blues on Tuesday.


This game was postponed in September when national events took over, with the passing of Her Majesty the Queen, meaning that we reconvene on Tuesday night for this midweek fixture.

Harrogate opened the season with a convincing home victory over Swindon, but things got tough with an away defeat at Crewe in the league, and a home loss to Stockport in the Carabao Cup the same week.

The ship was steadied with four points taken from the encounters with Crawley and Gillingham, but more recent times have seen them struggle for results, with four defeats from their last six league games.

They were at Valley Parade for their FA Cup first-round meeting with Bradford on Saturday and they booked a place in round two courtesy of an early goal from Matt Daly.

A solid defensive display kept the Bantams at bay, and Jack Muldoon should probably have made things more comfortable as the away team continued to threaten on the break.

who watch

Midfielder Alex Pattison is into his second season with the club and he has four goals from 15 appearances so far. 

A dynamic player he looks for the forward pass and likes to get into the box.

He's our midweek one to watch.

First-half goals from Diamond and McArdle gave the home side a two-goal cushion when United were in Yorkshire in April 2022. Jack Diamond added a third in time added on.

The Papa John's Trophy meeting in January 2022 at Harrogate brought an early goal from Luke Armstrong - and that proved to be enough to settle the tie.

Harrogate currently hold the bragging rights courtesy of a Josh March penalty in the first half of the game in February 2020 which was enough to earn the Sulphurites their win.

Our referee for this game is Mr Thomas Kirk. He has taken charge of 17 games so far this season showing 71 yelow cards and no reds.

Mr Kirk stepped up to life in the EFL for the 2022/23 season, having taken charge of some tough encounters in the National League the previous year.

Probably most enjoyable will have been the play-off semi-final between Solihull Moors and Chesterfield at the end of May 2022. 

The Spireites took an early lead but were put to the sword in what was an entertaining encounter that was allowed to flow by today's man in the middle. 

He was with us for our opening game of the 2022 season when we beat Crawley 1-0 on the last day of July. Kris Dennis scored with just five minutes on the clock, and Jack Armer's was the only name taken that afternoon.
