Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Brunton Park will host Saturday’s League Two game between Carlisle United and Exeter City. The Cumbrians have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team beating Bristol Rovers, losing to Rochdale, while sharing the spoils with Tranmere. Carlisle have a chance to climb to 14th place in the standings, but they will have a mountain to climb on Matchday 42. Tobi Sho-Silva is widely expected to return to the starting XI after finding the net in the last league fixture.
Exeter, on the other hand, moved one step closer to League One promotion thanks to back-to-back wins over Stevenage and Newport. The Grecians want this win more than the mid-table Cumbrians, and we predict that they will give fans yet another reason for celebration this weekend. In the first half of the season Exeter defeated Carlisle 2-1.
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.
