Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Harrogate and Carlisle United face each other in a highly-anticipated game at EnviroVent Stadium. Harrogate aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Cambridge United, with the team eyeing their first home win since October 17, 2020. The newcomers do not seem to be at their sharpest ahead of the visit of Carlisle United, and it is no wonder they are seen as underdogs in Tuesday’s clash.
The Cumbrians, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-0 win over Walsall. Since a win over Harrogate will see Carlisle United retain top position in the League Two standings, away win should be considered. Talented winger Joshua Kayode, who scored his fourth goal of the season at the weekend, will be one of the men to watch in the away team. This will be the first meeting between the two teams in the English fourth tier.
