Carlisle United v Peterborough United Match Preview & Best Odds

 

Carlisle United are still in search of their second league win of the campaign and they will be going all-out for three points when they welcome Peterborough United to Brunton Park this evening.

Having edged past Stockport County via a penalty shoot-out in the League Two play-off final a few months ago, Carlisle United were always going to find life rather tricky in League One although while they have only managed a single win from their opening ten league outings, the Cumbrians head into tonight’s meeting with Peterborough United outside the relegation zone. That said, of the sides below them in the division, Wigan Athletic and Reading do enjoy a game-in-hand over Paul Simpson’s men and their respective points deductions clearly play a part in keeping the Cumbrians outside the bottom four.

Carlisle crashed to their fifth defeat of the season when they lost 2-0 to Wycombe Wanderers at the weekend, the 29th minute dismissal of Jokull Andresson leaving Simpson’s side with a mountain to climb. The Cumbrians will need to put in a much better showing tonight if they are to avoid defeat against a Peterborough United side which are battling at the upper end of the division.

The Posh lost in dramatic fashion to Sheffield United in the two-legged play-off semi-final last season, Darren Anderson’s men having secured what looked to be an unassailable 4-0 lead from the first leg, only to throw in the towel at Hillsborough and lose by the same scoreline in 90 minutes, extra-time ending 5-1 in favour of the Owls who subsequently won the resultant penalty shoot-out.

Peterborough won their first three games of the new campaign and while they subsequently hit a sticky patch, they have collected eight points from their last four outings. Darren Ferguson’s side beat Bristol Rovers 2-0 at London Road last time out and the Peterborough boss will be looking for more of the same at Brunton Park tonight.

While the Posh have only managed a single point from their last three away games in League One but we expect them to collect all three at the expense of the Cumbrians this evening. Simpson’s men seem to be struggling at this level and while they will fight hard and look to make life difficult for their opponents, we envisage the Posh prevailing here and condemning Carlisle to their sixth league defeat of the campaign.

 

Back Peterborough United to win-to-nil at best odds of 11/4
