Carlisle vs Plymouth Prediction

Carlisle dropped points in their last League Two clash after Crewe ran riot over them on the road with a whopping 4-1 scorecard. The hosts have now come out on top in just one of their last five games, garnering no more than five points from a possible fifteen.

Miserably, the home side are currently sitting twenty-first in a table of twenty-four, and are sixteen points adrift of their counterparts for the weekend as well.

Meanwhile, Plymouth made a swift return to winning ways last week by taking down Scunthorpe away from home. The guests were much the better side in that matchup and slotted three goals past their counterparts, who managed to retaliate with just one of their own.

It is also worth mentioning that Plymouth have stumbled just once in their past five games in the fourth division. The visiting contingent have not been showing any signs of slowing down on the road either and have come away with the win in three of their previous four outings.

In sharp contrast, the hosts have secured the bragging rights in just two of their past seven matchups here. Hence, the tag of favorites most certainly goes to Plymouth in this one.

Be that as it may, Carlisle have consistently salvaged a point in each of their last three clashes at home. Considering that it was also the hosts who pick up all three points in their last h2h meeting here, the safest choice would be opting for a double chance.

Furthermore, the hosts have been at their defensive best in front of the home crowd, as of late. Impressively, they have kept a clean sheet in each of their past four games here in all competitions.

Meanwhile, Plymouth have not been keen on racking up the goals scoring charts on the road. Only thirteen of the thirty-seven goals that they have scored so far have come from their outings.

Taking into account that all of their previous six meetings with each other here have also featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the final scorecards, expect more of the same when they lock horns this weekend.
