Our prediction for this League 2 match:
After suffered a 1-0 loss at Bristol Rovers on Matchday 6, Crawley Town will be aiming to return to winning ways when they face Carlisle United at the People’s Pension Stadium. The Red Devils are eager to move away from the relegation zone, but they will have a big fish to fry in Saturday’s football match. Both Appiah and Nadesan are pushing for a start, meaning that Frost and Nichols could drop to the bench.
The Cumbrians, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 2-1 loss at Hartlepool, with the team beating Salford 2-1 at the weekend. Carlisle United aim to climb to the playoffs berth, and they should take advantage of Crawley’s slow start to the season. Tristan Abrahams should continue to lead the line for the visiting team despite failing to find the net in the triumph over the Lions.
