It would appear that Carlisle United are set for another season of mediocrity, the Cumbrians extremely unlikely to threaten the play-offs any time soon with thoughts of relegation also far from their minds as things stand, seven points currently separating Steven Pressley’s men from the bottom three.

Nevertheless given their inconsistencies, there is absolutely no room for complacency at Brunton Park and the Cumbrians could find themselves dragged into the mire on the back of a couple more poor results. Indeed Pressley’s side have won just one of their last four league outings with two defeats during this time and they will be desperate to bounce back from a disappointing 1-0 defeat at Newport County last weekend.

Crewe Alexandra are enjoying an altogether better season thus far with the Cheshire side sitting fourth in the League Two table with just a single point separating them from current leaders Forest Green Rovers. The Alex have lost just one of their last seven league matches and will certainly have their sights firmly fixed on promotion.

With this in mind, we fancy Crewe’s chances of clinching all three points at Brunton Park this weekend with the home side likely to add to the scoreline in what has the makings of a thrilling encounter, BetVictor Bookmakers going 3/1 on Crewe Alexandra to win and both teams to score.
