Bookmakers have responded to Carlisle United's impressive burst of form by lengthening their League Two relegation odds.

Keith Millen's improving Blues are now as long as 10/1 to go down.

It follows a run of four wins from five which has taken them six points clear of the drop zone.

United's spell of 12 points from 15 - including four clean sheets - has lifted them to 19th position, above rivals Barrow AFC, Stevenage, Colchester United, Scunthorpe United and Oldham Athletic.

The Blues also have a game in hand on some of those sides.

William Hill and BetVictor are both now offering 10/1 for the Cumbrians to go down.

Bet365, having made United 2/1 for the drop in mid-December, now offer odds of 6/1 for a Carlisle relegation.

SkyBet have also lengthened their odds from 11/2 to 7/1.

Second bottom side Scunthorpe are odds-on favourites to go down. The Iron are as short as 1/4 for the drop with William Hill.

Bottom outfit Oldham are 1/2.

United, meanwhile, are now given a better chance of survival with some bookmakers than fellow Cumbrians Barrow, who sit one place and two points behind the Blues in League Two.

The Bluebirds are 5/1 for relegation with SkyBet and 9/2 with William Hill. But the south Cumbrians have longer odds of 8/1 with Bet365.

United's prospects of making a dramatic play-off charge in the second half of the season have, meanwhile, also been revised.

They are now 12/1 with Betvictor for a top-seven finish, and 14/1 with William Hill.

The Blues currently sit 10 points below the play-off places.
