Competition: League One

Market: Barnsley win

Odds: 19/20 @ BetUS

Two sides who find themselves battling it out at opposite ends of the League One table, Barnsley will make the trip to Carlisle on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Carlisle might have only made their League One return this season, it is no secret that Paul Simpson’s men are tipped as a leading relegation contender this time around. Although the Cumbrians might have snatched a crucial 1-0 victory away at fellow strugglers Burton last month, it appears that was just a minor boost for the one-time Preston boss. Last seen over the weekend falling to an action-packed 3-2 defeat at the hands of Charlton, Carlisle have remarkably lost 10 of their previous 11 appearances across all competitions – a run that stems all the way back to New Year’s Day. Opening the midweek fixtures sat rock-bottom of the table, Simpson’s downbeat squad have also gained a real reputation for their glaring issues on home soil. In fact, on what has quickly become an infamous rut, Carlisle have lost all of their last five straight battles in front of their own supporters by an aggregate score of 15-3.

As for the visitors, putting in a nightmare performance over the weekend as they eventually slumped to a shock 5-1 drumming at home against Lincoln, the Tykes will certainly be seeking a response here. Nevertheless, still leading the chase in the play-off hunt and holding a commanding seven-point buffer from dropping out of the top-six, Neill Collins’ men have lost just one of their previous eight appearances across all formats. Likewise, last seen on their travels clinching an action-packed 4-2 win against Wycombe, Barnsley have continued to shine with their displays on the road. It should be highlighted, the Yorkshire-based outfit are unbeaten in all of their previous eight contests away from Oakwell – a run that stems all the way back to December 5th. Likewise, picking up a 2-1 victory when they welcomed Carlisle to town for their reverse League One showdown back in January, we are expecting a similar outcome on Tuesday night.
