Carlisle United are as long as 11/4 to make a splash with a first away win at Grimsby Town tonight.

Those odds are offered by Unibet as the Blues head to Blundell Park for the rearranged League Two clash.

The Blues are seeking their first away victory of 2022/23, and other victory prices include 13/5 (Bet365), 11/5 (SkyBet) and 5/2 (William Hill).

The Mariners have yet to win at home in the league since their return to the EFL.

They are priced 5/4 for victory by Coral, 11/10 by Betfair and 21/10 by BetVictor.

The draw is 9/4.

Grimsby's Ryan Taylor is 11/2 favourite for the first goal along with Aribim Pepple.

For Carlisle, top scorer Kristian Dennis is 13/2 to strike first, with Omari Patrick 17/2, Jack Stretton 9/1 and Jordan Gibson 16/1.

Outsiders for the opener include Owen Moxon at 20/1, Paul Huntintgon at 33/1 and Jack Armer at 40/1.

There were no goals in the abandoned meeting between these sides last month, when a waterlogged pitch put paid to the spectacle after 34 minutes.

A goalless 90 minutes tonight is 43/5.

A 1-0 Carlisle win is 9/1, while a 2-1 home triumph is 44/5.

United are 11/2 to be winning at half-time and full-time, and are 22/1 to come from behind to win.
