Carlisle vs Cheltenham prediction
England League 2
Carlisle United (6) vs Cheltenham Town (18)
Carlisle are coming from losing 3-0 away vs Northampton (16), but in fact they weren’t as bad as the result tells us. Total record is 14-3-11 with 45-35 in goal difference. They are the third highest scoring team in the league and they are fighting for a promotion playoff spot for sure. 6-0-1 last 7 matches is solid, and they should be fired up for 3 points again today.
Cheltenham are standing with total record of 7-8-12 and 32-41 in goal difference. 2 straight losses now, 1-3 at home vs Tranmere (9) & 1-0 away vs Crawley (17). Another season finishing in the bottom half of the table seems likely, and when facing a strong attacking team as Carlisle it seems obvious that they will concede goals imo.
* Carlisle won the reverse fixture by 0-1 back in August
* Cheltenham have never won at Brunton Park
Carlisle should be fired up for a win again, and taking in mind that they doesn’t have any problems in getting goals scored at home lately, I expect them to grab 3 points and get back winning here. They have scored 2+ goals in 5 of their last 6 home matches. Cheltenham doesn’t look as good at all, and they are usually losing this match. I expect Carlisle to win this comfortably.
