Carlisle to win the game
Carlisle United come into this match with the recent improvement in form after the win over Swindon. They have a great head-to-head record over Port Vale after winning four out of the last six encounters. Despite the strong and deep squad, Port Vale have had a poor start to the season with the team failing to win a game or score a goal in the opening two rounds. Carlisle might just be able to pull off another win over Port Vale.
Total goals under 2.5
The two teams have been shy in the opening rounds of the season. In the win over Swindon, Carlisle managed to get two goals and these were the first for the team this season. Meanwhile, Port Vale are yet to score in the league after playing against Northampton and Tranmere Rovers.
Both teams to score – no
Carlisle and Port Vale have struggled to hit top form in this early part of the campaign and this is quite an expected outcome given the poor form during pre-season. After a goalless draw between these two teams back in April and a narrow win for Carlisle back in October, this game could once again produce a low scoring encounter with one of the teams failing to score.
