Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Scunthorpe play host to Carlisle at their Sands Venue Stadium on day 25 of the 2021/2022 League Two campaign. The Iron were not in action in midweek due to the coronavirus outbreak, but they did well to beat Oldham 3-1 on Boxing Day. Scunthorpe aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, and we predict that Ryan Loft, who scored a brace at the weekend, will pose a big threat to the opposition back-line.
The Cumbrians, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-0 win over Stevenage. Carlisle United are eager to grab something from the relegation six-pointer, and seeing that they will go for a win as well, over 2.5 goals betting option should be considered. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be winger Jordan Gibson, who has found his goal-scoring touch of late.
Highlighted Player (Harry Bunn):
Harry Bunn is a Manchester City product who played for the likes of Rochdale, Preston, Oldham Athletic, Crewe Alexandra, Sheffield United and Huddersfield Town on loan before signing a permanent deal with the Terriers in January, 2014. Bunn scored 15 goals in 91 appearances for Huddersfield Town before moving to Bury in a three-year contract in the summer of 2017.
The English attacker joined Bury as he was hungry for a first-team football. Harry Bunn, though, quickly changed the club as he joined Southend United on loan in August, 2018. After he impressed in the 2018/2019 season, the club chiefs decided to sign a permanent deal with Bunn. The Southend United forward was born in Oldham on November 21, 1992.
His main position is left winger, but he is capable of producing fine performances as attacking midfielder as well. The right-footed footballer has a contract with Southend United until June 30, 2020.
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.
