No-one can accuse Carlisle United fans of not travelling to support their club with the Cumbrians regularly taking a sizeable support with them on their travels and we can expect a large number of travelling Blues fans to make the journey to Hillsborough for this FA Cup third-round replay tonight.

Keith Curle's men held their more illustrious opponents to a goal-less draw in the original tie at Brunton Park earlier this month with the Owls failing to make the most of the numerous chances with which they were presented. Atohe Nuhiu came desperately close to giving the visitors the lead early in the game, however the woodwork got in the way on that occasion and while Sheffield Wednesday were dominant throughout, they were unable to convert this superiority into victory.

The question is, can the Cumbrians hold firm once again to deny the Owls tonight? Either way, there needs to be a winner at some point at Hillsborough and we'll be siding with the hosts to get it. Carlisle United put in a solid defensive display in front of their home fans, however we don't envisage them holding firm against the Owls this evening.

Sheffield Wednesday have been far from impressive on home soil this season with just one win in their last eight home games. Indeed their have lost all-but-one of their last four matches in front of their home fans and we can expect the Cumbrians to find the back of the net at the very least. Nevertheless the gulf in class between the sides will become apparent and while we expect the visitors to add to the goal-tally, the hosts will almost certainly outgun them in ninety minutes and edge their way into the fourth round of the FA Cup at the second time of asking.
