Carlisle vs Cardiff Predictions – Who will win?

League Two strugglers Carlisle managed to force a replay from the first tie, eventually drawing the match after going into a 2-0 lead in the first half. Cardiff probably thought they should have won it in the second half but both sides now have to do it all again in the North West. Carlisle have just lost promising defender Jarrad Branthwaite in a transfer to Everton and they are struggling financially, so a fourth-round game against Reading or Blackpool would be a blessing. However, Cardiff are much the better side out of these two and they’ll also want to get through to the next round.

The Bluebirds are in midtable in the Championship so they are unlikely to get a play-off place and won’t be dragged into the relegation zone. Carlisle have failed to score in four of their last five home matches now and that will be a real concern to the fans. Cardiff may have only won once in their last seven but they got a creditable point from the South Wales derby on Sunday and have scored in all but three of their away matches this season. My prediction for this match is a comfortable win for the visitors, with Carlisle continuing to struggle in front of goal on home soil.
