Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Brunton Park will host postponed fixture between Carlisle United and Newport County. Carlisle United aim to bounce back from a heavy 3-0 loss to Colchester United, while Newport County want to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Morecambe. The Exiles are safe for now as they are sitting in the 15th position in the standings, 16 points clear of the relegation zone, meaning that they have little to play for in the midweek clash.
The hosts, on the other hand, are eager to escape the danger zone, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Newport County. Considering that the Exiles are on a five-game losing run on the road in the League Two, we predict that Carlisle United are going to emerge triumphant in the Brunton Park Showdown. It has to be noted that important defender Byron Webster returns from suspension for the hosts.
