Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Brunton Park will host Saturday’s football game between Carlisle United and Cheltenham Town, the two teams who are sitting in the playoffs berth ahead of Matchday 12. Carlisle United quickly bounced back from a 1-0 loss to Exeter City, with the team beating league leaders Newport 3-2, and, no doubt, they are eager to give fans yet another reason for celebration.
Boss Chris Beech rested several first-team regulars in the FA Cup win over Hayes & Yeading, but he is likely to field the best possible side against Cheltenham. The visitors have been struggling on the travels of late, with the team losing to both Port Vale and Oldham on the road, and that is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. In their last meeting in the League Two Cheltenham defeated Carlisle 1-0, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
