Our prediction for this League 2 match:
All eyes will be on Brunton Park when Carlisle United and Crawley Town go head to head in the League Two round 29. The Cumbrians aim to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Forest Green, with the team eyeing a place in the playoffs berth. French attacker Gime Toure, who scored as a substitute in the defeat to Forest Green, is pushing for a start. You should bear in mind that Carlisle United are after their tenth home win of the season.
The Red Devils, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-1 loss to Harrogate, and seeing that the Cumbrians are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that the visitors are going to return to West Sussex empty-handed. John Yems’ troops are on a three-game winless run in the League Two ahead of Saturday’s clash.
