Forest Green to Win
League Two leaders Forest Green were held to a 0-0 draw at home by a stubborn Tranmere side last weekend, though Rovers are our tip to get back to winning ways at Carlisle on Saturday. Forest Green have been superb on the road this season, winning three and drawing one of their first four away matches of the new campaign and their knack for producing the goods on their travels should hand them the edge in Cumbria.
Over 2.5 Goals
Only four clubs have conceded more often than Carlisle in League Two this term and on Saturday The Cumbrians welcome the division’s most prolific team to Brunton Park. That looks like a recipe for goals and when you consider that 100% of Carlisle’s last five league assignments have passed the over 2.5 line, the same market suddenly becomes very appealing at the prices on offer.
Matthew Stevens to Score Anytime
Matthew Stevens has looked a player reborn since swapping Stevenage for Forest Green in the summer and the 23-year-old has scored an impressive six goals in nine League Two appearances so far. It’s worth noting that Stevens notched four of his efforts in away games for Rovers and his potency on the road makes him a worthy pick in the anytime goalscorer market on Saturday.
Carlisle vs Forest Green: Match Preview
Carlisle Team News
Danny Devine and Josh Dixon could both be missing from Carlisle's midfield this weekend while Sam Fishburn is also a doubt up front. Key performer Joe Riley is also in a race to be fit for Saturday’s game. The Cumbrians were trounced 4-0 at Sutton in their last League Two outing and with a record that now shows just one victory in seven attempts, United are looking down instead of up.
Forest Green Team News
Udooka Godwin-Malife has been ruled out this weekend, while fellow defender Baily Cargill has also been rated as a doubt. Like many teams in League Two this term, Forest Green were frustrated by Tranmere's rock-solid defence last weekend, though Rovers should have more space to exploit at Brunton Park on Saturday. Forest Green hold a four-point advantage at the summit of the table under new boss Rob Edwards.
