Tip Reasoning

A frustrating start to the season sees Cambridge United sit just above the drop zone after three games played. United have had a solid couple of seasons and were expected to push on this year after a number of good signings but their form so far is seeing them positioned at the wrong end of the table. A particular area of concern for Shaun Derry will be his sides ability in front of goal as Cambridge have only managed to find the net once in 270 minutes of League Two football.

Keith Curle will be quietly pleased about his sides start to the season after an impressive point away at title favourites Portsmouth. This was followed up with a victory over last season’s defeated play-off finalists Plymouth Arygle. Curle will be disappointed with only claiming a point midweek however and, like this weekends opponents, he will be frustrated with the form in front of goal. Carlisle have yet to score more than once in 90 minutes and they had to rely on a late equaliser on Tuesday to claim a point at home against newly promoted Cheltenham Town.

Given these two sides struggles in front of goal we are not predicting this game to break the mold. We think it will be a close contest but ultimately we think Keith Curle’s men will finally end the hoodoo Cambridge seem to have on them to claim all three points. An away win would be our pick and that is available at 11/5 with bet365 although if you wanted to play it safe then a Carlisle double chance is available at a healthy 4/6.
