Carlisle Double Chance
Carlisle recorded their second League Two victory of the campaign last weekend with a fine 2-1 win over Salford and we’re tipping The Cumbrians to enjoy more success at Crawley. Carlisle beat Town home and away last term and on Saturday, United should be able to avoid defeat against a Crawley side nursing some bruises after a four-match winless run.
Under 2.5 Goals
However, judging by the teams’ early records in the final third, we should expect a game of few goals at The People’s Pension Stadium on Saturday. Both Crawley and Carlisle are averaging just 1.0 goals per 90 minutes this term, while two of their last three encounters produced under 2.5 goals. We’re tipping that low-scoring pattern to continue this weekend.
Half Time Result: Draw
Crawley have struggled to get going this season, though The Reds’ habit of starting slowly opens up an opportunity in the markets this weekend. Both of Crawley’s first two home games of the new campaign were all square at the interval, while two of Carlisle’s first three assignments on the road were level at the break. There is enough evidence here to suggest that backing a draw in the half time result market on Saturday could return dividends.
Crawley vs Carlisle: Match Preview
Crawley continue to stutter
Successive hammerings on the road in league and cup to Forest Green and Charlton where Crawley conceded a whopping 12 goals combined has understandably knocked confidence in their camp, and manager John Yems again cut a frustrated figure last weekend when Town limped to a 1-0 reverse at Bristol Rovers. The Reds are inching towards the division’s bottom two and they could end up in the drop zone with another poor result this weekend.
Carlisle finding their feet
Carlisle harnessed the momentum from their EFL Trophy triumph over Hartlepool when they returned to league action at the weekend, forcing a 2-1 win over a strong Salford side in Cumbria. Chris Beech’s men had been looking a little ring rusty in the opening weeks of the new season, but having oiled their gears, the playoff contenders will be aiming to string some positive results together.
