Head to Head


Salford City have had the better of Harrogate in recent head to heads with five wins in a row over their opponents.

Two of the most recent additions to the Football League, they met for the first time in League Two last month. James Wilson got the only goal in a 1-0 win for Salford.

Salford City Form


Salford return home to Peninsula Stadium for the first time since Boxing Day following a run of four successive away games.

Richie Wellens' side picked up just four points from that run of games, but Salford remain firmly in the promotion frame. They are fifth, four points off top spot in League Two.

After defeats at Leyton Orient and Mansfield, Salford were 1-0 winners over Scunthorpe thanks to Ian Henderson's goal. 

That was followed by a hard-fought point from a 0-0 draw with promotion rivals Newport County on Saturday.

Salford haven't lost at home since early September, a run of 14 matches without defeat.

Salford City Team News


Central midfield is an issue with Darron Gibson is injured and Richard Towell doubtful.

Right-back Tom James has signed on loan from Hibernian for the remainder of the season and will go straight into the Salford squad.

Robbie Gotts caught the eye on his debut on loan from Leeds last week and will keep his place. Centre Di'Shon Bernard has also extended his loan move from Manchester United.

Harrogate Form


Harrogate have played only three times since losing to Salford in the reverse fixture, trading a win, draw and defeat in those games.

The Sulphurites were 2-1 winners over Oldham on Boxing Day thanks to a George Thomson double. But they had to wait another two weeks for their next match in League Two.

Simon Weaver's side lost 2-1 at Cambridge on their return to action. They led through Jack Muldoon's early goal, but conceded twice in the last 19 minutes and had Lloyd Kerry sent off 13 minutes after coming on.

Harrogate earned a point from a 0-0 draw at home to Exeter on Tuesday. Town were again reduced to 10-men with Warren Burrell dismissed for two yellow cards in the space of six minutes.

Harrogate Team News


Lloyd Kerry remains suspended and Warren Burrell joins him as he serves a one-game ban.

Centre-back Will Smith is getting close to returning from a long-term injury. Ryan Fallowfield is back from injury and could replace Jay Williams at right-back.

On loan trio William Hondermarck, Josh March and Josh McPake were left on the bench against Exeter. All three could get their chance to impress.
