Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Carlisle United and Southend United go head to head at Brunton Park in what is expected to be a very exciting match. The Cumbrians were anything but impressive in the season opener, with the team suffering a heavy 3-0 loss at Cambridge United, but it has to be noted that they had 19 goal attempts in the Abbey Stadium clash. Carlisle United are eager to grab something from their first home game of the season, and they are surely capable of matching Southend at home ground.
The Shrimpers, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Harrogate. Southend United continue where they left last season, and it should come as no surprise they are seen as underdogs in Saturday’s football match at Brunton Park. In their last meeting in League One the Shrimpers emerged triumphant, meaning that the Cumbrians are hungry for revenge.
