Cheltenham are battling for the top honours in League One and they are in the driving seat.

The Robins hold a one-point advantage at the top in the title race and have a game in hand.

Three points from this fixture against Carlisle, who in turn needed the win to try and keep outside hopes of a play-off spot alive, would serve Cheltenham very well.

Cheltenham Preview – Can the Robins get across the line?

A draw on the night in this midweek fixture for Cheltenham would see them earn automatic promotion.

But the Robins have a big shot at going up to League One as the champions.

It has been back to back wins that they have secured to put themselves in a strong position.

Those wins were over Stevenage and Colchester.

Each of Cheltenham’s last three wins in the league have been by a 1-0 scoreline.

For football betting in this League One fixture, a Cheltenham 1-0 correct score is at a quote of 6/1* (odds recorded 03:41 GMT April 26th).

The winning form at home is there for Cheltenham at the moment.

They have put together a four-match winning streak on home turf, and each of those victories were secured with a clean sheet.

Taking that just a little bit further, all but one of Cheltenham’s last ten League Two wins, home and away, have been secured with a clean sheet.

Cheltenham have conceded under a goal per game on average at Whaddon Road.

Will they add another victory to the board?

Our betting prediction:
Cheltenham to win to nil

Bet at Betfair

(odds recorded 03:41 GMT April 26th)


Cheltenham do look like a strong option for a home win on Tuesday night in football betting.

Given their run of clean sheet victories, a Cheltenham to win to nil football betting tip is at 5/2* (odds recorded 03:41 GMT April 26th).

The league leaders have the joint second-best home record in the division.

Across the entire League Two this season they have the second-best defensive record as well.

Earlier this season when they met Carlisle, Cheltenham took a 2-1 road victory.

In last season’s League Two campaign, Cheltenham Two earned a 2-0 home win over Carlisle.

None of the last four meetings between the two clubs in Gloucester have seen both teams score in the fixture.


Carlisle Preview – Can Carlisle dig out a result

There has been no win for Carlisle in their last five league fixtures, but it’s not been all doom and gloom.

They have drawn four of their last five games.

But they go into action on Tuesday night as the 11/4 underdogs* (odds recorded 03:41 GMT April 26th).

The road win doesn’t look too likely to be fair.

There have been just five away wins for Carlisle all season (W6 L10).

Following a 1-1 draw at home against Harrogate on the weekend, Carlisle have suffered just one defeat in their last eight league games.

So they can be a tough nut to crack.

Away from home, they did lose their last road game, a 1-0 defeat at Bolton.

That’s left them with only the one road victory in their last ten League Two away games.

Breaking that down a little bit further, Carlisle’s record at home against teams in the top half of the table is terrible.

It has been a D2 L6 record from such fixtures and Carlisle failed to score in six of those.

So the away win, based on the stats, does look a little unlikely.

Overall, Carlisle have scored at under a goal per away game on average this season.

Of the goals that they have produced away from home, 67% of them have been in the second half of fixtures.

Home and away, Carlisle have managed to produce the one goal in their last four fixtures.

It doesn’t appear that they are carrying enough form to topple the leaders.

But they are likely to keep the score in the match down, so under 2.5 goals for football betting looks the right way to go at 8/11 * (odds recorded 03:41 GMT April 26th).


Cheltenham vs Carlisle Betting Advice

We see Cheltenham getting the three points that will edge them closer to the League Two title from this fixture.

They have a tremendous home record and are so strong defensively.

Carlisle doesn’t look to have the scoring threat to really trouble the hosts. The Cheltenham to win option in the match outright at 11/10 is a great fit* (odds recorded 03:41 GMT April 26th).


Key Facts – Cheltenham vs Carlisle Betting Tip

  • 9 of Cheltenham’s last 10 league wins have been with a clean sheet
  • Cheltenham have won their last four league home fixtures

But here is a reasonable chance of a clean sheet cropping up for the Robins in this one as well.
