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 7, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Carlisle Utd. find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 17 games have yielded only 5 points. Mansfield are just outside the promotion places, in 4th, having taken 32 points from 17 games.
