Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Brunton Park will host Tuesday’s football game between Carlisle United and Crawley Town, the two teams who aim to move closer to the League Two playoffs berth. The Cumbrians are on a three-game losing run in the English fourth tier, but the game against Crawley Town could be the turning point for the hosts. Rod McDonald is banned for the hosts, while Joshua Kayode remains sidelined with injury. Both Gime Toure and Lewis Alessandra are pushing for a start.
The Red Devils, on the other hand, suffered back-to-back defeats to Barrow and Port Vale in the previous two league fixtures. Since Crawley Town are likely to go for a win in the postponed fixture as well, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. All Reece Grego-Cox, Tom Dallison-Lisbon, and Mark Wright are all out of contention with injuries for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Magnus Norman ):
Magnus Norman is a talented goalkeeper who plays for Carlisle United in the League Two, the fourth tier of the English football system. Born in London on January 19, 1997, Norman is a product of his hometown club Fulham.
Despite being a Fulham player from 2014 to 2020, the shot-stopper did not see any game action with the Cottagers at senior level. After spending a couple of years on loan at the likes of Farnborough, Hayes and Yeading United, Southport, and Rochdale, he signed a two-year deal with Carlisle United on August 7, 2020.
Magnus Norman represented England at under-18 youth level, but he has yet to receive a call-up for the senior team. The Carlisle United goalkeeper made his debut with the club in an EFL Trophy clash against Sunderland on October 6, 2020. The Black Cats won the game 5-3. Magnus Norman wears the No. 1 shirt at Carlisle United.
Highlighted Team (Crawley):
Crawley Town are an English football club that compete in the League 2. The club was founded back in 1896 and in the 2011/2012 season they secured promotion to the English fourth tier for the first time. The Devils play their home games at Broadfield Stadium, the venue which was built and opened in 1997.
The stadium has a capacity of 6,144 spectators and is owned by Crawley Borough Council. Crawley Town are well known for their red home kit, with the team wearing white shirts and sky blue shorts when playing on the travels. Crawley Town fans consider AFC Wimbledon the club’s biggest rivals, but they have rivalries with Brighton and Swindon Town as well.
In 1959 the Devils won the Metropolitan League Cup, which is considered one of the club’s biggest successes. Crawley Town won the Sussex Professional Cup in 1970, the Gilbert Rice Floodlight Cup in 1980 and 1984, the Southern Counties Combination Floodlight Cup in 1986, and the Sussex Senior Cup in 1990 and 1991.
