Our prediction for this League 2 match:
The People’s Pension Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Crawley Town and Carlisle United. Crawley have been having their ups and downs in the League Two of late, but a win over Carlisle will see them climb to the playoffs berth. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be talented attacker Max Watters, who scored his sixth goal of the season in a 1-1 draw with Harrogate at the weekend.
Carlisle United, on the other hand, aim to retain their spot in top seven. The Cumbrians aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Cheltenham Town, but seeing that they are on a three-game winless run on the road in the League Two, we are tempted to put our money on the Red Devils. It has to be noted that Crawley Town are eyeing their fifth consecutive win at home in all competitions.
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.
