Carlisle United vs Fleetwood Town: Top Free Betting Tips
Carlisle United host Fleetwood Town at Brunton Park for their next EFL Trophy group stage fixture. Both sides were embarrassed in their opening round outings and will be looking to give an improved account of their abilities this time around.
Both Carlisle United and Fleetwood Town enter this fixture on a three-match unbeaten streak. There is little to separate them as they have accumulated two draws and a win, respectively, in this period. However, it is the visitors who have won the last three duels. It will not discourage the hosts, who should be able to end that run and secure a draw in this meeting.
Under 2.5 Goals
Since the beginning of their rivalry in November 2013, all but their first meeting have concluded with Over 2.5 Goals. We do not expect more of the same in this meeting as both sides have kept their rivals silent in recent meetings. Goals have come at a premium and it will be the case in this encounter at Brunton Park.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
Neither Carlisle United nor Fleetwood Town fans will be confident in their defensive capabilities. Both sides look shaky at the back, conceding goals on a regular basis. However, this will help their scoring proficiency as they go head-to-head in this meeting. Fleetwood has seen four of their last five outings conclude with goals at both ends of the pitch, while the statsboard reads three for the hosts.
Carlisle United vs Fleetwood Town: Team News and Match Preview
Paul Simpson has a tough task on his hands as he manoeuvres Carlisle United's league fixtures. The EFL Trophy will be the least of his concerns but it allows them to sort out the chinks in their armour. The Cumbrians need to improve on their 20th place finish in League Two last season and this is the perfect platform to showcase the improvements made.
Scott Brown has the explicit task of keeping Fleetwood Town in League One. They barely managed to avoid relegation last season and cannot afford to be in the same place this time around. The Cod Army has impressed with their performances this term by cutting out losses but their inability to get over the line has hurt them in improving their league position substantially.
