TEAM NEWS

Reds have no injury worries with Dannie Bulman back in full training after recovering from a fractured cheekbone.

Carlisle are also at full strength.


VIEW FROM INSIDE THE CAMP

John Gregory: "We had them watched on Tuesday when they had a big win over Bradford. Graham Kavanagh has got some good young players in on loan and they won't want to come all the day down here and not go back with a result so we expect a tough 90 minutes, but we are just desperate to start playing again."


Graham Kavanagh (Carlisle manager): "I was pleased to put a bad run behind us with the win over Bradford and I hope it gives the boys some confidence with a big game coming up at Crawley on Saturday."


WE'VE MET BEFORE

In the Football League this will be the fourth meeting of the clubs. Reds won 2-0 at Brunton Park last season then drew 1-1 at home with Mat Sadler on target. The reverse fixture in November ended 1-1 with Billy Clarke scoring a late leveller for Crawley.


FORM GUIDE

Reds have lost just three of their last 14 in all competitions and are unbeaten at home in the league since December 26. Tuesday's win ended a sequence of seven defeats in nine for Carlisle, who won away from home last in November at MK Dons.
