Stanley will be hoping to continue their strong start to the season having remained unbeaten on home soil. Will they be able to keep themselves in the top three at the end of the weekend as they play host to the Cumbrians? Carlisle have been patchy and are still looking for some consistency. This is a tough away game for them having been smashed apart in their last away game. Accrington are 11/10 to take the win at bet365, with Carlisle at 23/10.
It has been solid stuff from Accrington so far with a W3 D1 L1 record on the board. At the Crown Ground, they have won both of their games so far, taking down Colchester and Mansfield there. They have had no bother scoring this season with at least two goals having been netted in each of their games so far. They haven’t kept a clean sheet yet though so there will probably be goals in this one. They have great scoring power in Billy Kee and Kayden Jackson who are 13/10 joint favourites in this game.
This won’t be a great fixture for Carlisle because they lost 4-1 in their last away game which was at Lincoln. Overall this season the Cumbrians have gone W2 D1 L2 and their away form reads W1 L1. They have hit the back of the net in each of their games so far this season, which suggests again that this could be a high-scoring match. Carlisle have conceded in all but one of their games so far this season so they may struggle to keep the Stanley at arm’s length.
Head to Head News

Top Betting Tips
Accrington have the scoring power to take the win in this one and keep their good momentum going. With an average of over two goals per game, that can’t be ignored and the Cumbrians cannot match up to that. Home win and both teams to score.
