This should be a very good, competitive fixture on Wednesday night from League Two.

Carlisle and Salford are 7th and 8th respectively in the league and so there may not be too much to choose between them.

There are three big points up for grabs in this one as they lock horns.

Carlisle Preview – Can The Cumbrians seal the home points?

Carlisle have a very good home record in League Two this season. That’s the first thing that jumps off the page.

The Cumrbians are W5 L1 from thier six home fixtures played this season. The one loss happened in their last home game.

That was an excusable one though against a strong Cheltenham side and it was only by a 1 goal margin.

There have been plenty of goals put on the board at home from Carlisle as well. They are averaging over 2 goals per home game.

So that is a pretty handy return of course and they are the 13/10 favourites to pick up three points on Wednesday *(odds taken 22:19 GMT, Monday, 30th November).

Interestingly The Blues have been leading at the halftime break in all but one of their home games.

So they have been a strong first-half team. 69% of their home goals have been netted in the first 45 minutes of matches.

For a betting for those expecting a home win, a Carlisle/Carlisle HT/FT option is running at 3/1 currently* (odds taken 22:19 GMT, Monday, 30th November).

Our betting prediction:
Carlisle/Carlisle HT/FT

Bet at William Hill

(odds taken 22:19 GMT, Monday, 30th November)


This will be just the second meeting between the two teams.

They met at Brunton Park last season and played out a 2-2 draw. The reverse match never got played as the season was cut short.

There are only three teams at the moment who have earned better home records in League Two than Carlisle.

So that is a big strength that they have and The Blues shouldn’t be underestimated here.


Salford Preview – Can Salford make up ground?

Salford have won their last two league games in League Two but those were both at home.

While they are thriving on home turf, the same can’t be said from their efforts out on the road in this campaign.

It has been a W2 L3 record that Salfrod have taken on their travels.

For Wednesday’s night’s meeting at Brunton Park, Salford are the 21/10 underdogs* (odds taken 22:19 GMT, Monday, 30th November).

Salford have lost their last three away games, so that is where they are at currently with their away form.

It has been just one goal that they scored in that sequence of road fixtures as well.

Without question, looking at that, there are some vulnerabilities there.

But one big strength of Salford this season has been their defense.

Only Cambridge have a better defensive record than they have in League Two. But they are facing a good scoring home team.


Carlisle vs Salford Betting Advice

We are going to roll with Carlisle on this one for the win at 13/10 in the match outright* (odds taken 22:19 GMT, Monday, 30th November).

The Cumbrians are in pretty strong shape at Brunton Park and have scored at least two goals in all but two home fixtures.

So we think that they have enough to break the defence of Salford on Wednesday night.


Key Facts – Carlisle vs Salford Betting Tip

  • Carlisle have won three of their last four league home games
