Carlisle Utd vs Stevenage Betting Tips: Stevenage to Win

Judging by their abysmal performance so far, Carlisle is clearly heading in one direction towards an immediate return to the England's fourth division, with little hope of miraculously espacing the relegation zone, after adding a pitiful 23 points to their tally from 38 league outings.

Firmly lodged at the base of the League One table with a staggering 16-point gap from safety and a mere eight fixtures remaining, the Cumbrians are already eyeing the exit door, knowing full well that their survival is a mere pipe dream, a notion solidified by their dismal string of outcomes.

Even with the majority of their recent fixtures against teams fighting to avoid the drop, Paul Simpson's luckless squad couldn't make the most of the favorable run of games, only putting a measly three points on the board from a potential 15 from their last five third-tier outings.

Since claiming maximum points in an unexpected 1-0 triumph away at Burton on February 27, the Blues from Cumbria have slipped into defeat in each of their subsequent four League One fixtures, with the latest blow coming from the 17th-placed Shrewsbury in a 0-1 loss.

Next on the agenda for the basement boys is a clash against Stevenage, a team navigating through choppy waters as they desperately seek points to stake their claim for a top-six finish, currently perched in eighth position with a mere one point adrift of the coveted spot.

Truly, the Boro's distasteful winless drought has now extended to four third-division matches after playoff hopefuls Leyton Orient dealt them a silent-but-stinging 0-1 loss, with the lack of cutting edge in the final third largely to blame for slipping out of the top-six, hitting the back of the net only once in March.

Equally proficient both at home and away, Stevenage won't have a better opportunity than this Saturday to shake off recent disappointments and revive their playoff hopes, as they visit Bunton Park, the pitch that has witnessed six consecutive Carlisle losses, conceding an eye-popping 18 goals in the process.

With the Cumbrians falling apart at the seams, we believe the playoff chasers have enough firepower to deal a seventh straight home blow to their Saturday's hosts.

Stevenage

Stevenage team news

As they face the bottom-placed League One side, the visiting team arrives with a full squad at their disposal, with Jake Forster-Caskey emerging from the treatment room as the final addition, set to take his place in Saturday's action.

Witnessing a frustrated Steve Evans make four substitutions right at the start of the second half in the 0-1 loss to Leyton Orient last weekend, it wouldn't be surprising to see some changes in this week's showdown with Carlisle.
