Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Carlisle and Stevenage, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the 2020/21 season, go head to head at Brunton Park in what is expected to be a close encounter. The Cumbrians aim to build on back-to-back wins over Salford and Bradford City, and a victory over Stevenage could see them climb to automatic promotion places in the League Two table. Carlisle totally dominated the game against Brentford, and they should have recorded a routine victory over the Bantams.
A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Rhys Bennett, who has been scoring goals for fun of late. The Boro, on the other hand, have been struggling to find their form in the first half off the season, with the team sitting just above the relegation zone. Carlisle seem to be at their sharpest at the moment; therefore, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise.
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.
Highlighted Team (Stevenage):
Based in Hertfordshire, England, Stevenage Borough are a professional club that compete in the League Two. The Boro are well known for their red and white home hit, while dark blue is the dominant colour of their away kit. Stevenage play their home games at Broadhall Way, the stadium which can hold up to 6,722 spectators and they were founded in 1976.
The Boro have won FA Trophy on two occasions (2006/07, 2008/09), with the team clinching the Herts Senior Cup title in the 2008/09 season thanks to a 2-1 win over Cheshunt. Luton are considered one of the club’s biggest rivals and there have always been fireworks in matches between the two sides.
In 2015 fighting broke out between rival fans near to the end of the clash at the Lamex. It has to be noted that Stevenage Borough were founded in 1976 after the bankruptcy of Stevenage Athletic.
