Carlisle United form and stats

With 1 League Two win, 5 draws and 3 defeats from their home games, Carlisle United are certainly not brimming with confidence. The home team are struggling everywhere these days as they haven't won a league-game, regardless of being the home or the away team, in twelve attempts.

The Carlisle United fans got no joy from their last match, a League Two game also here at Brunton Park: A 0-2 defeat against Harrogate Town (placed 6th). Rod McDonald was "man of the match" with a rating of 7.44 out of 10. The defender McDonald hit two key passes and won 9 of 11 duels.

Prior to that, an away loss at Exeter City.

This is expected to be a close game, with Carlisle United perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with Carlisle as a small favourite), we find six games. Carlisle United has won three of these, drawn one and lost two.

There's a new fixture coming up fairly quickly for Carlisle United, as the EFL Trophy home game vs Lincoln City is only three days away.

The goals haven't exactly been flowing for Carlisle here at Brunton Park in the league, with less than one goal per game on average (5 from 9 games). It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 0 of these goals has been scored in their last three home matches. Carlisle have conceded 9 in these home matches.
