Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Carlisle United and Forest Green go head to head at Brunton Park in the League Two round 10. The Cumbrians suffered a heavy 4-0 loss to Sutton in their last league match, but they did well to beat Everton U21 in the EFL Trophy in midweek. Carlisle United aim to remain undefeated at home ground, but they will have a big fish to fry in Saturday’s football match.
Congo attacker Manasse Mampala misses the game through suspension, while experienced attacker Lewis Alessandra returns to the starting XI after he was rested in the EFL Trophy game. Forest Green, on the other hand, head into the match following a goalless draw with Tranmere Rovers. The Green Army aim to retain top position in the standings, but seeing that Carlisle United are tough to beat at Brunton Park, we are tempted to put our money on draw.
