With an identical return of three defeats in their last four League Two tussles respectively, both Bristol Rovers and Carlisle are in rotten form ahead of their clash on Saturday. Confidence in both camps will understandably low following an equally poor set of results and a share of the spoils could be the likeliest outcome when the out of sorts opponents face off on Saturday. Carlisle have already drawn four times this term and a fifth stalemate looks possible here.
Under 2.5 Goals
Both Bristol Rovers and Carlisle have struggled in the final third this season and a deluge of net-shredding action this weekend between the goal-shy teams shouldn’t be expected. Both clubs are averaging less than a goal per 90 minutes this term and with match-winners in short supply on either side of the dividing line, we’re tipping under 2.5 goals to be notched in Bristol.
Bristol Rovers to Score First
While results at the Memorial Stadium have been subpar, Bristol Rovers can draw some positives from one metric at least. The Pirates have scored the first goal in three of their last four assignments on home soil in League Two and their deadlock-breaking knack could be worth backing again when they take on a Carlisle outfit that conceded first in 100% of their last three tests on the road.

Bristol Rovers Team News
Anssi Jaakkola, Mark Hughes, Josh Grant and Alex Rodman are all considered doubtful for Bristol Rovers this week, while Trevor Clarke, Leon Clarke and Sam Nicholson have all been ruled out. Defender Alfie Kilgour was sent off for two bookable offences in The Pirates' 3-1 reverse at home to Swindon last weekend and he will miss the game against Carlisle through suspension as a result.
Carlisle Team News
Tristan Abrahams could be missing from The Cumbrians' frontline this weekend, while Danny Devine and Josh Dixon are a couple of doubts in midfield. Manasse Mampala is available again after suspension however. Carlisle were beaten 2-0 at home by league-leaders Forest Green last week, and subsequently dropped down to 19th spot in the process.
