Carlisle United vs Crawley Town Prediction

Having somewhat distanced themselves from the drop zone in recent weeks, Carlisle United will look to continue their upwards trajectory when they take on mid-table Crawley Town this weekend. A run of three consecutive wins has seen the Blues leap from 23rd at the end of November, to their current position of 19th in the table.

Having taken nine points from their last trio of League Two outings, Carlisle have provided themselves with some breathing space at the bottom of the fourth tier. It means the Blues have taken as many wins from their previous three league fixtures, than they had managed in all 20 outings before. After keeping three consecutive clean sheets, should Carlisle achieve a shutout on Saturday, it will be the first time since March 2008 United have gone four games without conceding a goal.

Home advantage is something Carlisle have relied on this season, picking up 14 points during their matches at Brunton Park, compared to 11 when on the road. Hoping to continue that record when Crawley come to visit, they’ll be facing a side who are unbeaten in their previous four away matches in League Two.

Free from the threat of relegation, Crawley can spend the second half of the season looking to consolidate on their current midtable position, whilst dreaming of an unlikely, but not impossible playoff push. As one of the form sides in the division, John Yems’s team will feel confident of bridging the four-point gap between themselves and the top seven.

It’s seven seasons since Crawley last competed in League One, and if the Red Devils have any hopes of a return to the third tier, it is matches against sides below them that they’ll need to win. However, a cause for concern will be their woeful record against Saturday’s opponents, as Carlisle have won the previous three between the pair held at Brunton Park.

Crawley may struggle away to Carlisle, but they should have enough to snatch at least a point.

Carlisle United Team News

Keeping their feet firmly on the ground will be an objective manager Keith Millen will no doubt be repeating in the Carlisle dressing room. Goal scorers from last weekend’s triumph over Bradford City, Jordan Gibson and Omari Patrick, will be keen to add to their returns in front of goal.

It was Gibson’s sixth goal of a profitable campaign, and he will make up part of a midfield anchored by Corey Whelan and Callum Guy. There is unlikely to be a return for Zach Clough, as he continues to recover from a calf problem.

Crawley Town Team News

Having struggled throughout December with Covid and injuries, manager Yems has wasted little time in dipping into the January transfer market. Promising midfielder Caleb Watts has joined Crawley from Southampton on a short-term loan deal, and could be in line to make his debut this weekend.

Having represented Australia at Olympic level, Watts provides Crawley with a wealth of experience and will look to provide top scorer Kwesi Appiah with service, to add to his return of nine goals for the campaign so far.
