Walsall to Win

Reason for tip

Only three sides have picked up more home points than Walsall in League Two this season and they could continue that fine form against a Carlisle side with one eye on their own promotion charge.

Walsall 1-0

Reason for tip

Each of the last five H2H encounters produced under 2.5 goals including one just earlier this month, we can see this game being yet another tight encounter.

Walsall vs Carlisle Predictions

  • Walsall are unbeaten in each of their last six matches.
  • Only three sides in League Two picked up more than Walsall’s 20 home points.
  • Carlisle have lost both of their away cup games this season.

Wonderful Walsall can continue their fine home form

A six game unbeaten run ahead of this FA Cup clash with Carlisle has seen them move closer to the promotion race and will serve to build confidence as they seek to make it to the third round for the first time since 2018/19.

Walsall boss Michael Flynn knows this opposition well and is unbeaten in seven of his 11 personal encounters with Carlisle, including a 0-0 draw away in Cumbria just earlier this month.

Currently on a fine run of five straight home league wins, Walsall should have enough to give Carlisle a good game, even though their visitors occupy a higher league position than themselves.

Carlisle’s focus seems to be on promotion

Although Carlisle are flying high in the League Two play-off spots, they have already lost both of their away cup clashes this season against lesser opponents Barrow and Shrewsbury.

Visiting manager Paul Simpson is yet to win against Walsall after two personal clashes (D1, L1) and could be made to wait even longer for his first victory in this fixture.

We’re going for a home win in this encounter, with a smaller stakes selection going the way of a 1-0 correct score in favour of Walsall, a result which would continue the five-game H2H streak of matches with two or fewer total goals.
