Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
A place in the Carabao Cup round 2 will be at stake when Tranmere and Harrogate face each other at Prenton Park on Saturday afternoon. Tranmere failed to impress in the 2019/20 League One season, and, as a result, they suffered relegation to the League Two. The Rovers are eyeing a quick return to the English third tier, but, no doubt, they have big ambitions for the EFL Cup campaign as well. A man to watch in Michael Jackson’s team will be experienced attacker James Vaughan, who is likely to make life difficult for the opposition defenders.
Harrogate, on the other hand, did remarkably well to secure promotion to the League Two. The visitors are brimming with confidence ahead of their Carabao Cup opener, but seeing that the hosts want this win more than the visitors, we predict that Simon Weaver’s men are going to return home empty-handed.
