Carlisle United vs Barrow Match Analysis & Prediction
31/01/2023 10:45 pm
After recording their third win in a row, Carlisle United set their sights on an automatic promotion place as the play host to Barrow at Brunton Park on Tuesday.
While the hosts claimed a 1-0 victory over Rochdale in their previous game, Barrow will be looking to bounce back from a 2-0 defeat to Northampton Town.
Carlisle United are currently in fine form in League Two, as they have posted five wins in their previous six matches in the league, leaving them in fourth place – with their victory over Rochdale moving them six points clear of Salford in fifth.
A staggering goal difference over their competitiors provides them an additional cushion, though Carlisle will start to believe in a real possibility of a top-three finish, which would earn them automatic promotion to League One.
With a league-topping 43 goals scored this season Paul Simpson’s side’s biggest attribute is their ability to exploit the opposition in attacking areas and clinically finish off their chances.
Meanwhile, Pete Wild will need to rejuvenate the morale amongst the Barrow camp, following a run of nine matches with just one win across all competitions.
After a run of three results in a row without losing and holding the league leaders to a goalless draw, it seemed like Barrow may have been showing signs of regaining their form heading into a tough game against a free-scoring Northampton Town side.
However, Northampton managed to win 2-0 at the Furness Building Society Stadium, further compounding an uncomfortable reading of recent results for Barrow.
Heading into their next game against Carlisle United, it will be a similar task to their last match, as they face another of League Two’s most potent sides.
