Carlisle United v Blackpool Past Meetings

The sides played out an entertaining 2-2 draw in the reverse league fixture at Bloomfield Road back in September, where Blackpool fought back from two goals down to rescue a point.

That was the first meeting between the pair in a decade due to the Seasiders recent rise up the divisions.


Carlisle United v Blackpool Stats

Carlisle have lost only one home league match this season and have the third best home record in the division, but are without a league win at Brunton Park in three attempts.

Blackpool are on their worst league form of the season – without a win in six games with only three goals in that time.



Carlisle United v Blackpool Team News

Keith Curle has a fully fit squad available for the hosts, but Jason Kennedy, Jabo Ibehre, Shaun Brisley and Tom Miller are all one booking away from a suspension.

The visitors too have no fresh injury concerns or suspension worries, but Colin Daniel and Clark Robertson are both just a yellow card away from picking up a one-match suspension.


Reason for Carlisle United v Blackpool bets

You only need to look at the league table and recent form guide to see the difference between these two sides, separated by eleven league positions and fourteen points.

Carlisle will go into the match as heavy favourites due to a number of factors – their home form with only one defeat all season can not be discounted, and they have only lost four of their last 19 fixtures across all competitions.

Unbeaten in four, they got back to winning ways at Leyton Orient last time out and are in a strong position to win automatic promotion this campaign.

Blackpool have had a turbulent half-decade off the pitch, tumbling four divisions and they are struggling to adapt to life in the fourth tier, winning only nine of their 28 league fixtures to date.

This game will have goals; the pair shared four in the reverse clash earlier in the season, while only league leaders Doncaster have scored more than Carlisle this campaign, while they’ve conceded four more than 19th-placed Accrington Stanley.

Both odds represent strong value for money and are the most tempting outcomes for this encounter.
