Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Saturday’s football game at Globe Arena pits together Morecambe and Carlisle United, the two teams who sit in the danger zone ahead of Matchday 20. Morecambe are low on spirits ahead of the visit of Carlisle United as they were hammered by Crewe 5-0 in their last league fixture. The rock-bottom side are eager to give fans something to cheer about, and we believe that they are capable of making life difficult for the Cumbrians, who are on a four-game winless run in all competitions.
Even though Morecambe will be without suspended defender Samuel Lavelle against Carlisle United, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the hosts, who want this win more than the visitors. The Cumbrians suffered four defeats in the last five away games in the league, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered.
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.
