Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Saturday’s football match at Brunton Park pits together Carlisle United and Exeter City, the two teams who are eyeing a place in the playoffs. Carlisle United aim to build on a 2-0 win over Walsall, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach against Exeter City. The Cumbrians have been impressive at home ground in the 2020/21 League Two campaign, and we are positive that they will find the net in Saturday’s football match.
The Grecians, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Morecambe. Exeter City have been having their ups and downs of late, and seeing that they are likely to go for a win in the Brunton Park clash, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. In their last meeting at the venue Exeter defeated Carlisle 3-1.
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.

Nicknamed the Grecians, Exeter City are a professional football club that welcome their rivals at St. James Park. The stadium was opened in September 1904, and it can hold up to 8,696 spectators. Exeter City play their homes in white jerseys with red stripes, and black shorts, while violet and yellow are the dominant colours of their away kit.
The Grecians made it to the FA Cup quarter-finals on two occasions (1930/31, 1980/81), with the team advancing to the FA Trophy semis in the 2005/06 season. The likes of Harry Gee, Cliff Bastin, Maurice Setters, Dick Pym, Fred Whitlow, Arnold Mitchell, Tony Kellow, Fred Binney, Darran Rowbotham, Lee Sharp, and David Pleat are one of the most notable footballers who played for Exeter City in the past.
