Our prediction for this League 2 match:
All eyes will be on Brunton Park when Carlisle United and Forest Green face each other in the League Two derby. Both sides are eyeing automatic promotion to the League One, and, no doubt, a lively contest is on the horizon. The Cumbrians aim to build on back-to-back wins over Walsall and Exeter, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in the midweek derby.
The Green Army, on the other hand, failed to impress in a goalless draw with Northampton, and, to make things even worse for Mark Cooper’s troops, influential midfielder Ebou Adams will miss the Carlisle United game through suspension. Since Forest Green are not regarded as good travellers, we are tempted to put our money on the Cumbrians this time out. In the first half of the season Forest Green defeated Carlisle United, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
