Our prediction for this League 2 match:
After sharing the spoils with Scunthorpe United at Sands Venue Stadium, Colchester United will be looking to return to winning ways in the League Two when they host Carlisle United at their JobServe Community Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The U’s are eyeing their third consecutive win at home ground, and they are seen as favourites to win Saturday’s football game against Carlisle United.
The Cumbrians, on the other hand, are five points clear of the relegation zone ahead of the trip to Colchester. Carlisle United recorded their last league win against Macclesfield Town on November 2, 2019, meaning that the lack of confidence could prove to be a big problem for the team. In their last meeting at JobServe Community Stadium the two teams played out a 1-1 draw, but home win should be considered this time out as the U’s are eyeing promotion to the League One.
Highlighted Team (Carlisle):
Founded in May 1904, Carlisle United are a professional football club that have one of the biggest stadiums in the League 2. Brunton Park is the club’s home ground, and it can hold up to 18,202 spectators. When playing at Brunton Park Carlisle United footballers wear blue shirts and blue shorts, while their away kit is sky blue.
The Cumbrians maintain a rivalry with Workington And Barrow, but it has to be noted that the two clubs have not met in the Football League since the 1970s. Carlisle United won their first Football League Trophy in the 1996/97 season, with the team beating Colchester United 4-3 on penalties.
The Cumbrians repeated the success 14 years later (2010/11) as they defeated Brentford 1-0, thanks to Peter Michael Murphy’s goal. Carlisle United recorded their biggest win against Hartlepool United (8-0) on September 1, 1928, with the team suffering their heaviest defeat to Hull City (1-11) on January 14, 1939.
