The Tykes are back in the top 6 after going undefeated in the last 5 rounds (W3 D2). Barnsley are also unbeaten at home since October – W4 D3. At the same time, Carlisle remain in deep trouble and they are under serious pressure after losing 3 of their last 4 matches and 9 of their 13 away league games so far (W1 D3). 

​​​Correct outcome prediction: Barnsley to win

At the same time, Carlisle remain in the penultimate spot and they have the worst away record in the division – W1 D3 L9. 

Total home goals prediction: Over 1.5 Barnsley goals

Our next Barnsley vs Carlisle prediction again backs the home side. We think the Tykes will be able to score at least 2 goals in this match. Barnsley scored more than 1 goal in all of the last 5 rounds. 

To add to that, Carlisle conceded 2 or more goals in 5 of their last 6 away matches.

Our final Barnsley vs Carlisle prediction is our attempt to predict the correct score. We back Barnsley to win this game 2-1 as this was the exact scoreline in 2 of their last 3 league wins. Also, Carlisle’s last away game brought them a 1-2 defeat.

How far will Carlisle’s fans travel to Barnsley?

The driving distance between Carlisle and Barnsley is only 144 miles (231km). However, as we all know exiting the Lake District is always a tricky thing to do with the road network far from great. That’s why Carlisle’s fans should be ready for a journey lasting close to 3 hours even if there are no delays or detours. 

Considering the tricky wintery conditions and the late hour of the match our advice for all away fans is to dress warm. Yes, we don’t think these old-fashioned Carlisle United bobblehats look ridiculous, so please wear them if you have them.
