Football – England – League Two Betting Tips

The English domestic season returns to action this weekend following the international break, but League Two action continues on with my first pick featuring Colchester United taking on Carlisle United at their Weston Homes Community Stadium.

Just one point and one league place separates Colchester from Carlisle, but the hosts possess a solid record on home turf with a record of  3-2-1 13/6 which includes wins over Forest Green Rovers, Crawley Town and Mansfield Town, along with registering recent back-to-back wins on home soil.

Indeed, the hosts possess a very solid record in front of their home fans as they’ve suffered just one defeat from their last 12 matches in League Two, so they’ll fancy their chances of claiming something from this clash. Colchester recorded a heavy 4-1 defeat over Carlisle United last time these two sides met.

Visitors Carlisle United come into this Saturday’s encounter at Colchester having suffered a 1-0 defeat at home to Exeter City last weekend, and they now occupy a disappointing bottom half position in League Two as a consequence.

Carlisle’s recent form has been sporadic as they’ve not only recorded away wins at Crewe Alexandra and Crawley Town, but have also experienced losses at home to Stevenage and the aforementioned Exeter, so a result here today is far from guaranteed for The Cumbrians.

It’s true that Carlisle have won their last two away matches on the trot, but these wins have been at fellow bottom half teams, Crewe and Crawley, but they’ve also lost at Lincoln City, Accrington Stanley and Coventry City, amidst an overall away record of  3-0-3  9/10.

I have to back the home side here, but I recommend using the asian handicap on offer.

Pick: Colchester United AH0 @ 1.57 bet365
