Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
A place in the FA Cup round 3 will be at stake when Carlisle United and Forest Green face each other at Brunton Park in what is expected to be a close encounter. The two teams played out a 2-2 draw in the original fixture at the New Lawn and, as a result, a winner will be decided in the replay. The Cumbrians are on a three-game winless run in the League Two, with the team sitting in the danger zone ahead of the FA Cup game.
Seeing that Carlisle United’s main goal is to secure the League Two survival, we do not believe that punters can find big value in backing the home side. Forest Green, on the other hand, are determined to secure promotion to the League One. The Green Devils have big ambitions for the 2019/2020 FA Cup campaign as well, meaning that away win should be considered.
Highlighted Team (Forest Green):
Forest Green are an English club which was founded back in 1889. The Rovers host fellow League Two teams at the New Lawn, the stadium with the capacity of 5,302. Forest Green played their first home league game on October 6, 1889, with the team sharing the spoils with Brimscombe.
Green is the dominant colour of their home kit, and Forest Green footballers wear black shirts and black shorts when playing on the travels. In the 1981/82 season the club won the FA Vase, with the team beating Rainworth Miners Welfare 3-0 in the title game at Wembley Stadium.
It has to noted that town of Nailsworth, where Forest Green are based, is the smallest settlement to ever host a Football League club. In December 2012 the club won a prize for growing a field without using chemicals. cheltenham town are regarded as one of the club’s fiercest rivals.
