Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Saturday’s football game at Brunton Park pits together Carlisle United and Morecambe, the two relegation-threatened teams. Carlisle United aim to put an end to their four-game winless run, whereas Morecambe are eager to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Grimsby Town. The Shrimps are only one point clear of the relegation zone ahead of Matchday 35, meaning that there are eager to grab something from the Brunton Park showdown.
Adam Phillips, who scored his fourth goal of the season against Grimsby, will be one of the men to watch in the home side. The Cumbrians have drawn three of their last four league fixtures, which is the main reason why we believe that the two sides will share the spoils on Saturday. Carlisle United and Morecambe played out a 1-1 draw earlier this term, and yet another low-scoring affair is on the cards.
