Betting tips and match preview | FA Cup

Carlisle host Everton at Brunton Park in what will be a huge match for the home side after they look to recover from the floods that have made Brunton Park unplayable up until recently. For Everton after their midweek loss to Man City in the Capital One Cup Semi Final they will be looking for an immediate response as well.

The hosts Carlisle were left devastated after Storm Desmond left Brunton Park underwater and have only just managed to resume fixtures there. This tie against Everton and even a replay could have huge financial repercussions that could help the club level the deficit from Storm Desmond. They find themselves in a similar league position to Everton in that they are 11th in their respective League Two and have been inconsistent in their form this season to end up there.

Everton Looking To Beat The Cup Blues

Everton come into this match on the back of a hugely disappointing 3-1 defeat to Manchester City in the Capital One Cup Semi Final on Wednesday. They took the early lead through an excellent solo effort from Ross Barkley but Sergio Aguero and co had other ideas and they eventually ran out comfortable 3-1 winners on the night. Everton do have an immediate chance at redemption albeit in a different cup competition and Roberto Martinez has plenty of experience at winning the FA Cup having done it with previous side Wigan Athletic. They have been inconsistent in the league this year and an extended run in the cups should keep fans from getting too disgruntled with this seasons performances.

Although league form doesn’t count for much in the FA Cup it’s worth noting, Carlisle come into this fixture on the back of four draws, one win and one loss and they will be looking to register a first win in five matches against Everton. Carlisle’s previous fixture was a 1-1 draw with York in League Two.

For the visitors Everton their record in the last six is two draws, two losses and two wins, although they come into this fixture on the back of two successive losses against Man City and Swansea City.

Both teams are 4/7 on to score. The first goalscorer odds for Carlisle are Jabo Ibehre is at 7/1 with Charlie Wyke at 9/1. For Everton Romelu Lukaku is at 11/4 and Arouna Kone at 7/2.

These two sides faced off in the FA Cup in the 2009/10 season and Everton won 3-1. The odds of the same result are 9/1.
