Carlisle vs Forest Green Prediction & Match Preview

Carlisle vs Forest Green
England- League Two.
Date: Saturday, 24 November 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Brunton Park (Carlisle).

The hosts are just a point behind their opponents for Saturday. At present they are 11th in the points table with 8 wins and same number of defeats. They have scored a decent 23 goals, but conceded 22 in return.

Cumbrians are on a 2 match win streak in the league at the moment. John Sheridan’s team has won 3 of their last 6 games from all competitions. In 4 of their last 7 games across all venues, the final score had over 2.5 goals in total.

After a 5 match losing streak at home, they finally won a match against Newport, which is their only win at home in the last 7 competitive matches. Under 2.5 goals came in 6 of the last 7 home fixtures also.

The Green Devils are on a 2 match losing streak. They have only lost 3 games this season, but has 9 draws in their 18 league matches.

Mark Cooper’s team has scored an impressive 26 goals and conceded a goal per game in the league. A win in this match may possibly take them to a playoff spot. But against a Carlisle team who are on prime form, a win will be certainly difficult to achieve. His side are without a win in the last 4 competitive matches, of which 3 were defeats.

Over 2.5 goals came in 4 of the last 6 matches across all venues. Recent away form does not give any hope for the coach or fans.  Rovers have lost 3 of their last 5 games on the road and has only 1 win in them. The most common final score in those games was 2-1, which was the end result of three matches. Over 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of the last 6 away matches.

Since the away team are without a win in their previous 2 games, I don’t think they will get a win here. So the home side may get a win and extend their winning run to 3 matches.

Carlisle vs Forest Green: Prediction

Both the sides have been in great scoring form. The hosts have 23 goals and the visitors have found the net 26 times as well. So we can hope both these teams to score on Saturday and bet on the same with 1.70 odd.

Their last win against Newport who are 3rd in the table, gives the favorite label to the home side. If they defend better than that game 3 points are guaranteed for the hosts. So a bet can be placed on the hosts in the light of their 2 match winning streak, with1.95 odd.
