Bookies are struggling to separate Carlisle United and Sutton United ahead of this afternoon's Brunton Park clash.

The game sees League Two's 20th and fourth-placed teams go head to head.

And the bookmakers are offering similar odds on both a Blues victory and a Sutton triumph.

Keith Millen's hosts are 7/4 for the win with Coral and BetVictor to get back to winning ways.

William Hill offer 13/8, with Bet365 and SkyBet offering 17/10.

Sutton, meanwhile, are also 13/8 with Bet365, William Hill and Betfair, while SkyBet give the south London side the narrow edge at 8/5.

The draw is 12/5.

Sutton's seven-goal frontman Isaac Olaofe is 7/1 joint favourite to get the first goal this afternoon.

Donovan Wilson and ex-United man Richie Bennett are also both 7/1.

For Carlisle, fit-again Zach Clough is 7/1 to open the scoring, with Tyrese Omotoye 8/1 and Jon Mellish and Omari Patrick both 9/1.

Jordan Gibson is 5/1 to find the net at any stage - while a debut goal for Dynel Simeu is available at 20/1.

A 1-1 draw is the likeliest score according to bookmakers, at a price of 11/2.

A 1-0 win for the Blues is 8/1, while a Sutton repeat of September's 4-0 win is 120/1.
