Brentford v Carlisle United latest odds, news and free bets

Carlisle United have a golden chance to climb back into the play-off places on Monday night, with the Blues taking on Brentford in front of the Sky TV cameras

Greg Abbott’s team are enjoying a great season and United have lost just one of their last ten matches, although last week’s goalless draw with Tranmere was not only a disappointing result but also a poor performance.

The manager will want a reaction from his team at Griffin Park and Carlisle are 12/5 (bet365 – £200 free bets) to claim a precious three points which will see them leapfrog Stevenage in League One, even if Boro will have two games in hand.

Meanwhile, Brentford also have their own aspirations when it comes to sneaking into the play-offs, even if Uwe Rosler’s team haven’t quite lived up to the hype of pre-season when many people were tipping them for a top two finish.

The Bees have struggled at home, claiming only five wins from fifteen games at Griffin Park and that is why they are eight points off the play-offs, although they are an 11/10 poke (Paddy Power bookmaker) to land the spoils on Monday night.

Francois Zoko is the player to watch in this match, with the Ivory Coast forward having managed seven goals in his past ten matches and he can be backed at a tasty 9/1 to score the first goal of the game.

Gary Alexander is the danger man for the home side, with the forward having managed five goals in his past three games.
