Carlisle United bidding to win their fourth League Two match in a row and they’re a big price to land the three points
Carlisle fans are starting to get excited about Wednesday’s trip to Anfield, although Keith Curle will ensure that the players are focused on one game only come Saturday.
The Blues have enjoyed a bright start to the season both in the league and cup, with the surprise Capital One Cup victory kick-starting some domestic form which has seen the Cumbrians win three League Two matches.
United sit ninth in the table and a victory on Saturday afternoon is likely to propel the team into the play-off places, with BetVictor offering a best price 13/5 that the visiting supporters are celebrating at the final whistle.
It’s a tasty offering considering that Carlisle recently won at Hartlepool, while York have lost two of their three matches on home soil.
Russ Wilcox’s side were fellow strugglers in the division last season and 17th place in League Two suggests that the Minstermen are ripe for the taking this time around.
York have won just one of their past five matches and Carlisle have the leading scorer in the division thanks to a flying start from Jabo Ibehre.
The journeyman striker is already into double figures for the season, with the former MK Dons and Colchester forward in a rich vein of form.
Fans can back him at odds of 5/1 to score the first goal of the match, with odds of 7/4 available that he finds the net during the contest.
Two of the last three league matches have seen Carlisle win by a 3-2 scoreline which suggests that goals are in the offing again, with BetVictor offering a massive 40/1 that the Blues triumph again in a five-goal thriller.
