Accrington Stanley v Carlisle United Match Preview & Best Odds


Carlisle United and Accrington Stanley get their respective Football League Trophy campaigns underway this evening when they lock horns at the Wham Stadium.


First win of the campaign

These two sides traded divisions at the end of the 2022/23 campaign with Stanley dropping down from League One and Carlisle hauling themselves into the third tier via the League Two play-offs. The Cumbrians have found life tough in their loftier surroundings but they managed their first win of the campaign when beating Shrewsbury Town to the tune of 2-0 at Brunton Park on Saturday afternoon.



Accrington Stanley have made an altogether better start to their campaign with ten points collected from their opening five games, their most recent outing seeing them lose 3-1 to newly-promoted Notts County. John Coleman’s men made it through to the semi-finals of this competition last term, the side ultimately going out to eventual winners Bolton Wanderers, however the Stanley boss will be hopeful of another solid effort from his side tonight.


Little to separate sides

Despite Carlisle United competing in a higher division in the Football League, in terms of individual quality there’s very little to separate these two sides. Accrington have home advantage here and they will look to make this count and while they did make it to the last four of the competition last season, the Cumbrians finished at the foot of their group. On that basis, we’ll be siding with Stanley to grind out what should be a narrow victory on home soil this evening at best odds of 9/5.
