Carlisle vs Bradford – Free Betting Tips, Odds, & Predictions

Carlisle had a disappointing outcome in the first leg they lost 1-0 at Brunton Park. Bradford ended up managing a crucial victory thanks to the 18th minute goal from Jamie Walker.

Carlisle to win

Carlisle have picked up only one win in the last five matches following the recent loss against Bradford. There is an absolute lack of momentum within the Carlisle team who finished level on points with Bradford in the regular campaign. However, Carlisle generally play very well at Brunton Park and the team has only suffered one defeat in the last matches at home. Bradford might have registered big wins over Northampton in away games, but the pressure is likely to have its say.

Total goals over 2.5

The offensive Bradford has improved quite substantially and it is possible to come across the team getting over 1.5 goals in three out of the last four league encounters. The volume of goals is likely to be quite high in this game with Carlisle keen to get off blocks and wipe out the deficit as early as possible.

Both teams to score – yes

Carlisle will be pushing players in the hope of getting back into the tie. There are not too many counter-attacking opportunities for Bradford in the first leg, but the upcoming game could be the polar opposite of this trend. Bradford have been able to rejoice in away matches of late with seven goals in the last matches on the road.

Carlisle vs Bradford Match Preview – Team News and Analysis

Carlisle

Carling will look to get an early goal and soothe the ambience at Brunton Park. An early goal will also help settle the nerves for the team, who are likely to be concerned about being behind on aggregate. Manager Paul Simpson comes into the match with Finley Back being the only injury worry for the team. Finley Back is out with a hamstring problem.

Bradford

Bradford are likely to go with the same starting line-up which was successful in the first leg. Manager Mark Hughes would be disappointed with the outcome but his team could have scored a couple of more impact they had on the final third. There are no injury concerns for Bradford and this should allow Hughes to retain the familiarity.
