Preview: Crewe Do Battle With In-Form Carlisle

12 February 2019

Crewe and Carlisle go into battle as two of the in-form sides in Sky Bet League Two for tonight's re-arranged fixture.

The Alex have won five of the last eight games & lost just once during that period, 3-1 at Bury on New Years Day.

The Cumbrians too are in red-hot form, losing just once in their last ten games & winning eight of those.

The visitors have won both previous meetings this season 1-0 in the league & in the FA Cup - it's sure to be a hotly contested evening at Gresty Road.


Date: Tuesday 12 February 2018

Competition: Sky Bet League Two 

Venue: Alexandra Stadium

Previous Meeting at Host Club: Crewe 0-1 Carlisle (Nov 2018)

Referee: Paul Marsden (P25, Y70, R6)


Crewe: Crewe have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the contest, with James Jones the only absentee.

After the 3-3 draw with Macclesfield, it remains to be seen if boss Dave Artell will opt to tinker with his side.

The Alex are aiming for the fifth straight home victory after wins again Lincoln, Stevenage, Newport & Colchester.


Carlisle: The Cumbrians are set to continue their integration of a whole host of new signings made in the final week of the January window into their squad after their 1-1 home draw with Exeter City at the weekend.

Callum O'Hare started against the Grecians, but fellow new signing Mark Cullen came on for the final 20 minutes from the bench.

Steven Pressley could stick with that same XI or make a whole host of changes to his side after the Cumbrians were below the level of their other recent performances on Saturday.
