Harrogate to Win
Harrogate are licking their wounds following a three-match winless slump though the Sulphurites are worth backing to get back to business at home to Bristol Rovers on Saturday. The plodding Pirates have only won once on the road all season long, while Harrogate are yet to taste defeat on home soil. Town can climb back up to second spot with the right set of results this weekend and we’re tipping them to hold up their end of the bargain by beating Rovers.
Both Teams to Score
Harrogate’s return of just one clean sheet from their last 11 games in League Two is a major concern for boss Simon Weaver and the leaky Sulphurites shouldn’t be expected to claim a shutout this weekend. Bristol Rovers hold the division’s second-worst defensive record this term however and the Pirates look certs to concede themselves. With that considered, back both teams to score at the EnviroVent Stadium.
Luke Armstrong to Score Anytime
Luke Armstrong has been in blistering form for Harrogate this season and the Golden Boot-chasing forward is the joint-leading scorer in League Two with eight goals. The 25-year-old made his mark in Harrogate’s last home assignment against Tranmere and he should have further chances to add to his tally for the campaign against a porous Bristol Rovers outfit.

Harrogate Team News
Defender Connor Hall is still a doubt this week, while Rory McArdle is a confirmed absentee further up the pitch. Harrogate slipped to a 3-2 reverse at Hartlepool last weekend where they conceded three times in a disastrous seven-minute spell in the second half. Town have dawn four of their last five games at home, though they will be determined to straighten their course on Saturday.
Bristol Rovers Team News
Junior Brown, Mark Hughes, Josh Grant and Harvey Saunders are all in a race to be fit for Saturday, though Anssi Jaakkol, Leon Clarke and Alex Rodman are all expected to miss out. Cian Harries is back from suspension, though Trevor Clarke still has a ban to serve. Rovers were thumped 3-1 at home by Newport County last week – a result that keeps them close to the relegation zone.
