  • Carlisle have conceded seven goals in seven home league matches.

All to play for

Two teams with identical runs of form but contrasting aspirations meet in Cumbria this weekend as the play-off chasing Barrow head to take on strugglers Carlisle.

Barrow are currently 15th, six points in front of their hosts who are 23rd and in the relegation zone but defeat here leave them looking over their shoulder as opposed to staring down the top-seven.

Both teams have recorded FA Cup and EFL Trophy wins since their last league fixtures which ended in defeat. Carlisle were beaten 3-0 on the road at Northampton while Barrow fell to Rochdale at home a fortnight ago.

Carlisle are without a victory in six league games with Barrow failing to win any of their last five in the division but with just two wins in 15 league games all season Carlisle find themselves in deeper trouble.

Barrow have scored exactly once in five of their last six league games while Carlisle have scored just a single goal in their last seven fixtures which is why I’m leaning towards under 2.5 goals.

Barrow to edge out their hosts

Carlisle’s quality in front of goal is lacking and they are one of four sides to have scored just 11 goals this term. That’s an average of 0.73 goals per game and they have netted just five times in seven matches on their own turf. However, the Blues have conceded just seven goals at home compared to 17 on the road so should at least make this game competitive.

Barrow have recorded wins over Mansfield and Oldham who sit in between themselves and Carlisle, already this season, and we’re backing them to scrape a narrow 1-0 victory here.
