With the cricket World Cup, the Women’s football World Cup and plenty of options in boxing, tennis, F1 and golf to keep you occupied, there is a good chance you may not have missed the football season quite as much as normal this summer. However, now that those sports have stepped away from the forefront, it is time for the football to kick off once again and this weekend sees two sides who know that they could be found at either end of the table as Carlisle United welcome Crawley Town to Brunton Park.

Carlisle United have now had a few seasons in a row in which they have been in and around the promotion picture but found that they have not quite had enough to get over the line and play their football in the third tier of English football. The hosts position on a map means that they are usually one of the longest trips for visiting fans and they are usually well versed in making that trip as miserable as possible, a fact that the Cumbrians will be hoping to continue this season starting with the opening match of the campaign this weekend.

Making the trip to Cumbria is a Crawley Town side who have developed themselves nicely after their dramatic rise up the leagues a few years ago. The visitors were well backed in their non-league days but once the money started to dry up, it was widely expected that they would begin to drop back down the pyramid. However, the Red Devils have managed to establish themselves as a Football League side and look to have the foundations in place to have yet another solid campaign.

With a home fixture first up, the hosts will know that the pressure is on to produce the goods and get their season off to a perfect start. However, their visitors are more than capable and are unlikely to be intimidated by the situation. A look at the recent head to head between these two sides tells us all we need to know and backing both teams to find the back of the net looks to represent the best opportunity for a decent return.
