Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Saturday’s football game at Brunton Park pits together Carlisle United and Charlton Athletic, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. The Cumbrians aim to recover from back-to-back defeats to Cambridge United and Bristol Rovers and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against the capital club. Jack Armer is back from suspension, whereas Paul Huntington should miss out with injury.
The Red Robins, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team losing to Bolton, beating Wigan Athletic, while sharing the spoils with Portsmouth. Charlton aim to move closer to the playoffs berth and seeing that they will go for a win as well, we are tempted to place our bets on both teams to score. As for the away team, Scotland midfielder Conor McGrandles is pushing for a start after scoring a late equalizer in the last league match.
Highlighted Team (Carlisle):
Founded in May 1904, Carlisle United are a professional football club that have one of the biggest stadiums in the League 2. Brunton Park is the club’s home ground, and it can hold up to 18,202 spectators. When playing at Brunton Park Carlisle United footballers wear blue shirts and blue shorts, while their away kit is sky blue.
The Cumbrians maintain a rivalry with Workington And Barrow, but it has to be noted that the two clubs have not met in the Football League since the 1970s. Carlisle United won their first Football League Trophy in the 1996/97 season, with the team beating Colchester United 4-3 on penalties.
The Cumbrians repeated the success 14 years later (2010/11) as they defeated Brentford 1-0, thanks to Peter Michael Murphy’s goal. Carlisle United recorded their biggest win against Hartlepool United (8-0) on September 1, 1928, with the team suffering their heaviest defeat to Hull City (1-11) on January 14, 1939.
