Live on Skysports 2: Sun 13.30: It’s hard to pick a winner in the Johnstone’s Paints Trophy Final, which is 12/5 with to be level after 90 minutes.
Brentford currently lie ninth in League One while Carlisle are eleventh and so it’s hardly surprising that bookies are struggling to separate the pair as they meet on neutral territory at Wembley in the Johnstone’s Paints Trophy. The Bees are a top price of 13/8 at Stan James, who mark the same odds against the Cumbrians, while Greg Abbott’s men are a slightly chunkier 7/4 courtesy of .
Nicky Forster’s side have form on their side, they’ve won four out of five in the league and include a victory over Carlisle in that sequence but that run doesn’t count for all that much in a cup final environment and there is huge potential for this one to be all square after 90 minutes (12/5, ).
It will be no surprise if even 120 minutes can’t divide the two and both are available at 11/1 with Stan James to prevail on penalties.
Meanwhile, Jeffrey Schlupp has made four appearances for Brentford, but has only started the most recent two of those matches. In those starts the loan striker has struck three times, including a brace against Carlisle and he’s a tempting 12/5 with Skybet to notch at any stage in normal time in this one.
