Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Brunton Park will host Tuesday’s football match between Carlisle United and Leyton Orient, the two teams who are eyeing a place in the playoffs. The Cumbrians aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Forest Green, where French attacker Gime Toure scored a consolation goal as a substitute. Toure is widely expected to return to the starting XI, as well as Zanzala and Dickenson. Leyton Orient, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their four-game winless run.
The Lilywhites are four points behind the playoffs berth, but we are tempted to put our money on Carlisle United as they have been impressive at their Brunton Park this season. Leyton suffered four defeats in the previous five away games in the League Two, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the Cumbrians.

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.

Magnus Norman wears the No. 1 shirt at Carlisle United.

Leyton Orient have the rivalries with the likes of West Ham United, Millwall, Brentford, Dag & Red, and Barnet as well. The O’s registered their biggest win on November 12, 1955 as they crushed Crystal Palace 8-0.
