Carlisle Up Next

Image for Carlisle Up Next

Fresh from the thumping 4-2 defeat of Northampton Town, Hatters fans can now look with some optimism at the journey up the M6 to Brunton Park. We havent been there for 9 years, last winning 1-0 in match 1996.

Carlisle have lost more home games than any other in League Two. Defeats at home to Barnet, Northampton, Orient and Bristol Rovers leave me expecting a point at the very least. Lets hope Mr Bramble gets in the thick of it again and bags another brace..

As soon as a indication of the team is known I will update this article. So bookmark me for later on in the week.
