Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Saturday’s FA Cup at Brunton Park pits together Carlisle United and Doncaster Rovers, the two teams who meet for the first time since 2017. Back then Carlisle defeated Doncaster 2-1 in the League Two, but the Donny are seen as favourites to beat the Cumbrians in the FA Cup round 2. The visitors did well to beat Blackpool in their last League One game, meaning that they are high on confidence ahead of the trip to Cumbria.
Talented midfielder Taylor Richards is widely expected to return to the starting XI after coming as a substitute for veteran James Coppinger in the midweek clash. The hosts failed to impress in a 1-0 loss to Tranmere on Wednesday evening, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on Doncaster. The likes of Obiero, Patrick, and Reilly are all pushing for a start for the Cumbrians.
