Carlisle vs Swindon – Free Betting Tips & Predictions
Carlisle are winless in seven games ahead of their clash with away-day specialists Swindon on Saturday. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.
Swindon to Win
Swindon snapped their five-game winless run with a timely 3-0 triumph over Scunthorpe last weekend and that should arm the Robins with enough impetus to force another victory at Carlisle on Saturday. The Cumbrians are without a win in their last seven attempts in League Two while the Robins (8) have recorded the joint-most victories on the road in the division this term. Ben Garner’s troops know how to dig results out on their travels, so side with Swindon in Cumbria.
Both Teams to Score
Garner’s Swindon have established themselves as one of League Two’s most potent away teams in 2021/22, but while the Robins have been gathering plenty of points on the road, clean sheets have been few and far between. Indeed, Town have claimed just two shutouts in 15 away fixtures since August with both teams notching in 73% of the same games. That record makes for compelling reading, so back both teams to register again this weekend.
Over 1.5 Swindon Team Goals
Only leaders Forest Green have scored more away goals in League Two than Swindon this season and the Robins could enjoy another productive afternoon in the final third at Carlisle’s expense this weekend. The Cumbrians have conceded at least twice in each of their last five league tussles and with the host’s defence alarmingly porous, Swindon are worth backing in the over 1.5 team goals market.
Carlisle vs Swindon Match Preview: Swindon back on track?
Carlisle are only just keeping their necks above water in League Two though they could plunge into the relegation zone if results go against them this weekend. The Cumbrians rescued a point late on at Colchester (2-2) last time out, though they have recorded just three wins in 15 fixtures at home overall this term. Manager Keith Millen will hope to have key midfielder Brennan Dickenson back from injury this weekend.
Swindon’s 3-0 victory over Scunthorpe last weekend felt like a significant moment and having ended their five-game search for a win, Town will be targeting more points against another relegation favourite on Saturday. Second top scorer Jack Payne missed the Robins' triumph over the Iron, though the schemer should be back in the matchday squad to face Carlisle.
