Recent respective form guides

Carlisle United's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Cumbrians have scored 9, a worringly large 14 have been leaked at the other end.

The away form of Coventry City however, is much more impressive, with a marvellous return of five wins and one defeat from the last six. Those games have seen the Sky Blues pummel 18 goals, and let in 8.

Carlisle United find themselves struggling down in 18th position in the league having picked up 29 points from their 26 matches.

Coventry City's 37 points from 26 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 12th position.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Nothing seems to be going right for the Cumbrians at home recently, and we can see no immediate turn around in fortunes as the Sky Blues come away with an easy victory. Away win
