A place in next season's League Two remains up for grabs in this weekend's National League playoff final. Harrogate Town play Notts County, but which side will come out on top at Wembley? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Harrogate vs Notts County Betting Tips

After finishing second and third respectively in this season's National League before March's shutdown, both sides avoided playing playoff quarter-finals. However, they edged past their semi-final opponents last week – which isn't a surprise if you're judging predominantly by pre-pandemic form.

Jack Muldoon's second-half strike proved decisive for Harrogate, scoring his 14th of the season in a 1-0 win over Boreham Wood.

Notts County were slightly more comfortable winners over Barnet in their semi-final. Goals from Kristian Dennis and Callum Roberts helped them to a 2-0 victory, and they're slight favourites to prevail in Sunday's showpiece finale.

Why? They possess EFL experience, having been relegated from League Two last season in a forgettable year where they had three different managers. Neal Ardley, who spent six years at AFC Wimbledon, took over in November 2018 and already has a higher win percentage (40%) than his time with the Dons.

There's a collective eagerness to help bring Notts County ‘back where they belong', something that Harrogate need a response to. After all, they didn't exactly finish the campaign strongly before the season's suspension.

Winning just two of their six games (L2, D2) immediately prior to the shutdown didn't exude confidence after an impressive season so far. They'll want to finish the job here.

Harrogate vs Notts County Correct Score Predictions

Harrogate are underdogs but the beauty of playoff finals is simple: it's a one-off game where anything can happen. Importantly, betting odds don't matter nearly as much as player performance does.

However, I'm confident Notts County have what it takes to emerge victorious in a hard-fought encounter. They will naturally expect a League Two return at the first time of asking.
