Harrogate Town had been forced to play their opening home fixtures at The Keepmoat Stadium, the home of Doncaster Rovers, whilst waiting for their new pitch to be ready.

Town and Barrow are both newly promoted to League Two, however last season’s Wetherby Road meeting was cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions.
