Tip Reasoning

Although we are still in the opening stages of the season, the league took a back seat in midweek as sides had the chance to start dreaming of a trip to Wembley as they took part in the Carabao Cup. However, those thoughts will have to be put to one side for the moment as the league returns this weekend and in League Two we see the clash between two sides who will believe that they are strong enough to challenge for promotion as Carlisle United welcome Mansfield Town to Brunton Park.

Carlisle United will be pretty satisfied with how they have started the season as they won the opening game of the campaign, and although they lost away to Swindon last weekend, they bounced back with a resounding 3-0 win away at Championship side Barnsley midweek. The Cumbrians have been typically strong in front of goal and in the three matches they have competed in so far, they have seen an average of 3.67 goals scored per game.

Making the trip to Brunton Park is a Mansfield Town side who will be bemoaning a slow start in more ways than one. The Stags will fancy their chances at promotion this season but they have had to settle for a draw at the end of the 90 minutes in all three of their matches so far, and all three of those matches have seen the final score settle at 2-2. The similarities between the matches do not end there either, as in both of the matches in the league, the Stags had to overcome a start which saw them 2-0 down in the early stages.

It is an interesting clash at Brunton Park this weekend and neither will want to find themselves any further behind the early pace setters come the end of the match. With both sides in such good form in front of goal at the minute and both perhaps struggling to keep it out at the back, there should be goals in this fixture. When you also factor in that eight of the last 10 meetings between these two sides has resulted in both teams scoring, then backing them both to find the back of the net once again and combining it with there to be over 2.5 goals to add a bit more value appears to represent the best opportunity for a good return.
