Top Carlisle vs Stockport Prediction

If you're looking for the best football betting tips, including our latest Carlisle vs Stockport picks, we can help you out:

Draw

The final of the playoffs in League Two is a big match and the two teams that will play in it have only been separated by three points in the regular season, so we expect a very close and exciting duel

With that in mind, our first Carlisle vs Stockport prediction is for the match to end in a draw. After all, that was the outcome of the last duel between these two teams as well and with the stakes so high, a draw sounds like a realistic outcome once again.

Under 2.5 Goals

It seems reasonable that for the second Carlisle vs Stockport prediction we are choosing this game to be a lower goal-scoring effort, even though we saw four goals in the last duel between these two teams.

However, this is the final of the playoffs and the winner gets to earn promotion to League One, so it's safe to expect both teams to enter this match extra carefully. That's why we don't expect to see more than two goals in this game.

Team News, Preview, and Carlisle vs Stockport Lineups

Carlisle

After finishing fifth in League Two, Carlisle secured a spot in the playoffs. In the semi-finals, they met with Bradford City and after tough two games, they managed to beat them after extra time in second leg at home to reach the final game of the playoffs. The team is now heading to Wembley Stadium to take on Stockport in the fight for promotion.

When it comes to team news, Morgan Feeney, Fin Back, and Jack Ellis are out with injuries right now. On the bright side, Jon Mellish will be back for Carlisle after serving a three-match supension.

Carlisle Predicted Lineup:

Holy – Barclay, Huntington, Mellish – Senior, Guy, Moxon, McCalmont, Armer – Garner, Sarcevic

Stockport

With three points more in the regular season than their upcoming rival in the final of the League Two playoffs, Stockport finished that part of the competition in fourth place, four points behind Northampton and direct promotion to League One. In the semi-finals of the playoffs, Stockport eliminated Salford, but they only managed to do so after penalty shootout.

Meanwhile, Stockport will have almost their entire squad at disposal, with only Macaulay Southam-Hales out with an injury. However, Kyle Wootton is also questionable at this time.

Stockport Predicted Lineup:

Hinchcliffe – Lewis, Horsfall, Hussey – Knoyle, Hippolyte, Camps, Croasdale, Rydel – Olaofe, Madden

Starting Lineups

Starting lineups are usually released 60 minutes before kick-off.

Player to Watch: Paddy Madden

We had a tough time choosing who should be our player to watch in this match, but we decided to go with Paddy Madden because he has a lot of experience, which could help Stockport in this huge game.

The Irish forward had a solid season in League Two where he scored ten goals and added four assists, but his experience can be crucial in this duel against Carlisle for promotion to League One.
