Bookies give Harrogate Town the narrow edge tonight against a Carlisle United side seeking a first league win in 12.

Keith Millen's second-bottom side host the seventh-placed Sulphurites at Brunton Park (kick-off 7.45pm).

And United's long wait for a win makes the visitors narrow favourites* to prevail this evening.

Simon Weaver's side - whose assistant manager is ex-Carlisle captain Paul Thirlwell - are 6/4 for victory with SkyBet, Paddy Power and BetFred, and 8/5 with William Hill and betfair.

A Carlisle win is available at odds of 7/4 with Bet365 and Betfair, and 17/10 with William Hill, Boyle Sports and Sky Bet.

The draw is 12/5 with Bet365 and 23/10 with 888Sport.

United are tonight hoping to avoid equalling a club record of five consecutive home league games without scoring.

If you think their barren Brunton run will continue, you can get odds of 9/4 on Carlisle failing to score.

A one-goal Blues return is 6/4 with two United goals 3/1.

Harrogate's Jack Muldoon is 5/1 favourite to get the game's first goal with Luke Armstrong 11/2.

Brad Young is 13/2 to net first for the Blues along with Zach Clough, who is hoping for a recall to the starting line-up.

Callum Guy, likely to return to the side after suspension, is 14/1 to break his United duck at any stage in the game.
