Bradford shared the spoils against Hartlepool last Saturday courtesy of Andy Cook’s second-half brace. It was the Citizens’ third consecutive league-draw, while the result extended their unbeaten run to 12 games in the English fourth tier. The Paraders have the best away record in the league, picking up 32 points from a possible 54, but they have not always found it easy to deliver in front of their own supporters, recording seven wins, seven draws and four defeats from 18 games at Northern Commercials Stadium. Their last win came against Colchester (2-0) on March 4 thanks to injury-time goals from Cook and Scott Banks. It was their 16th League Two-victory of the campaign.
Carlisle, on the other hand, have recorded 18 wins from 36 league-games this season, and their latest triumph came against Swindon Town almost ten days ago at County Ground. Although Jack Armer’s 51st-minute opener was canceled out by Tyrese Shade ten minutes from time, the Blues snatched all three points thanks to Ryan Edomndson’s dramatic winner six minutes into the injury time. It was their fourth consecutive win in the league. But Paul Simpson’s side couldn’t extend their wining run, sharing the spoils against Stevenage last Saturday. It was a lacklustre 0-0 draw at Brunton Park as only one shot on target was recorded by both teams combined. Meanwhile, Carlisle have recorded seven wins from their 17 away games in the fourth tier this season, and their last defeat on the road came against Doncaster Rovers back on New Year’s Day.
