Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Brunton Park will host Saturday’s League Two game between Carlisle United and Swindon Town, the two teams who were beaten by Shrewsbury Town and Walsall respectively in the EFL Cup on Tuesday evening. The Cumbrians are eyeing their second win of the season, and the fact that they defeated Crawley at home in their opener is surely giving fans a reason for optimism. Talented forward Ryan Edmondson, who limped off with injury in the EFL Cup defeat, is unlikely to feature against Swindon.
The Robins, on the other hand, have been struggling in front of goal of late. Swindon are eager to put an end to their three-game goalless run in all competitions, and seeing that they will go for a win in Saturday’s clash as well, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. Teenage midfielder Harrison Minturn is banned for the visiting side.
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 (Swindon):
Founded by Reverend William Pitt of Liddington in 1879, Swindon Town are an English football club which compete in the League Two. The Robins welcome their rivals at County Ground, the stadium which can hold up to 15,728 spectators (all-seated), with the team wearing red shirts and white shorts when playing at home.
Gray is the dominant colour of the club which turned professional in 1894. Oxford United are considered the team’s main rivals, but the Robins have rivalries with Bristol City, Bristol Rovers, and Reading as well. In 1969 Swindon Town did remarkably well to win the English League Cup, with the team beating Arsenal 3-1 in the title game at Wembley Stadium.
John Trollope is the club’s player with most appearances as he played 889 first-team games from 1960 to 1980. Premier League attacker Charlie Austin is one of the most notable footballers who played for Swindon Town in the past.
