Harrogate to Win
The Sulphurites have struggled in recent weeks, losing four of their last five competitive fixtures. On the other hand, the visiting Carlisle United have managed three wins in the same period. Despite their form, we are backing Harrogate Town to claim passage to the next round given Carlisle's poor away form. The Cumbrians have lost three of their last five away trips. Moreover, they have not won once in their three meetings in 2021, losing twice and drawing once.
Total Goals: Under 2.5
Harrogate has earned a midtable position but that has not come from their scoring form at the EnviroVent Stadium. They have only scored four goals in five recent home fixtures. A similar case is made for Carlisle who has scored one more in the same amount of away games. With both sides failing to score with regularity, it will be a low scoring affair on Tuesday evening.
Both Teams to Score: No
The three meetings between Harrogate and Carlisle in 2021 saw both sides hit the back of the net just once. With both sides heading into this knockout fixture troubled by scoring issues, the same tale will be repeated.
Harrogate vs Carlisle: Team News and Match Preview
It was a horror show at the EnviroVent Stadium in the 2020/21 campaign. Simon Weaver has brought stability to the rocking ship but Harrogate Town's recent form has let the fans down. They have lost three of their last four fixtures and need to step up their game. Fortunately for them, they continue to power forward in cup competitions, getting past the challenge of Tranmere in late December and will want a similar result against the Cumbrians.
After bowing out of the FA Cup, Keith Millen will want Carlisle United to continue their journey in the less glamorous EFL Trophy. They have reached the playoffs and have to oversee the challenge from Harrogate. The Cumbrian faithful will be less hopeful as the team are winless against their rivals, only scoring once in their three League Two meetings in the 2021 calendar year.
