<div><h2>Harrogate v Hartlepool</h2><p><strong>Thursday 26th December, National League</strong></p><p>Harrogate have a good home form record and beat Hartlepool in the FA Trophy a few weeks ago and can repeat the victory on Boxing Day. Harrogate narrowly got beat away at Borehamwood on Saturday and will look get back to winning ways.</p><p>Harrogate play an attacking style of football and have scored 8 goals in their last 3 home matches in all competitions so will look to add to this against a Hartlepool team who have struggled away from home.</p><p>Hartlepool struggled away at Woking and expect the same against Harrogate as the home team take all three points.</p><p><strong>Tip for the match: Harrogate to beat Hartlepool at 2.15 (23/20) with <a href=";a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Bookmaker!">Betfair</a></strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong><img alt src=";htype=0&amp;type=responsive-gallery" style="width:650px;height:415px" /></strong></p><h2>Barrow v AFC Fylde</h2><p><strong>Thursday 26th December, National League</strong></p><p>AFC Fylde drew at home to Yeovil on Saturday and their recent improvement will ensure they don’t get relegated this season. If they can go on a good run between now and the end of the season there is hope they can reach the play-offs.</p><p>Barrow’s match away at Solihull Moors was postponed due to waterlogged pitch so they will come into this match a lot fresher than their opponents.</p><p>Sitting top of National League at Christmas will give them hope they can reach the Football League come the end of the season, but with three games over the festive period, it’s important for them to start with a win over Fylde.</p><p>With confidence very high in the squad, they can take all three points in this Boxing day match.</p><p><strong>Tip for the match: Barrow to beat AFC Fylde at 1.83 (5/6) with <a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Bet365</a></strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><img alt src="" style="width:650px;height:326px" /></p><h2>Boxing Day Acca - Both Teams To Score</h2><p><strong>Thursday 26th December, National League</strong></p><p>Barnet won well at Maidenhead United last time out and return to The Hive to face rivals Borehamwood in what should be a high scoring encounter and a great game.
