Competition: League Two

Market: Cheltenham win

Odds: 1/1 @ 888sport

Within touching distance of securing a League One spot for next season, Cheltenham will welcome Carlisle to The Jonny-Rocks Stadium on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, managing to pick up a 1-0 win against Colchester over the weekend, the mood in Cheltenham’s camp will be at a real high. Able to build off of Cambridge’s slip up on Saturday afternoon, The Robins have found a route back to the top of the League Two table and are within striking distance of securing their promotion. With it appearing that their 1-0 loss against Crawley earlier in the month was just a minor blip, The Reds have since secured back-to-back wins and should be smelling a golden chance on home soil this week. With just a pair of defeats to their name over the past six weeks, Michael Duff’s side have continued to impress on home soil this season. Including a thumping 4-0 romp against Tranmere Rovers when opening April, Cheltenham have won each of their last four straight home fixtures on the spin.

As for the visitors, while a hugely impressive start to the 2020/21 campaign might have had many in Carlisle’s camp dreaming of a shock play-off charge, The Blues have struggled with their consistency once again. Gaining a reputation as a stalemate specialist over the past three weeks, Chris Beech’s side have failed to build off of their boost when opening April. Facing what will be a tough trip in midweek, it should be highlighted that Carlisle have shown some extended issues on the road. Including a 1-0 defeat against Bolton in their last matchup away from Brunton Park, they have remarkably recorded just a single victory on their travels since the start of January. Hit with a deserved 2-1 defeat when they welcomed Cheltenham to Cumbria back in November, we’re backing a similar home victory for the league leaders on Tuesday night.
