Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Cheltenham Town welcome Carlisle United to their Whaddon Road on day 29 of the 2023/2024 League One campaign. The Robins quickly bounced back from a 1-0 loss to Northampton, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence, but they are still trying to escape the relegation zone. Benjamin Williams limped off with injury in the last league match, with Will Ferry likely to step up.
The Cumbrians, on the other hand, are on a three-game losing run in the League One and given their shaky defence, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on the home side. There are no fresh injury worries in the visiting team ahead of the trip to Gloucestershire. In the first half of the season Cheltenham defeated Carlisle 1-0 thanks to Liam Sercombe’s goal, which is yet another reason why we are going to bet on the home side this time out.
Highlighted Team (Cheltenham):
Founded in 1887 by a local teacher Albert Close White, Cheltenham Town are an English club that compete in League Two. The Robins wear white jerseys with red stripes and white shorts when playing at home, while sky blue is the dominant colour of their away kit.
Cheltenham Town clinched the FA Trophy in 1998, with the team defeating Southport 1-0 in the title game. The match was played at Wembley Stadium in front of 26,837 spectators, with John Eaton scoring the only goal of the match. The Robins have won Leamington Hospital Cup, Midland Floodlit Cup, Gloucestershire Senior Cup, Cheltenham League and Gloucestershire Senior Amateur North Challenge Cup as well.
The likes of Gloucester City and Hereford are seen as Cheltenham’s traditional rivals, while, in more recent years, Forest Green Rovers have been the club’s main rivals. A 12-0 win over Chippenham Rovers (November 2, 1935), with the team suffering their biggest defeat against Tydfil (1-10) on March 8, 1952.
