Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Carlisle United and Crawley Town face each other at Brunton Park in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Saturday’s program. The Cumbrians aim to build on a 2-0 win over Bradford City, with the team eyeing their fourth consecutive league win. Since Carlisle do not want to give up on their playoffs dream, we believe that home win should be considered. New signing Omari Patrick is pushing for a start after scoring as a substitute in the last league match.
The Red Devils, on the other hand, have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team beating the likes of Leyton, Colchester, and Northampton in the last three league fixtures. Anyhow, a close encounter is on the cards at Brunton Park, and we are tempted to put our money on draw. Fit-again midfielder Jack Payne could sneak into Crawley Town’s starting XI this time out.
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.

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.
