Carlisle v Stanley

2 September 2016

After a run of home games the Reds return to the road to make a difficult trip to Carlisle.

Brunton Park has not been a happy hunting ground in the past but Stanley will be out to bring three points home from Cumbria.[vc_tta_accordion][vc_tta_section title="The Reds" tab_id="1470411712017-30fe7d0e-41fab72e-6c49658d-0122"]It's a first away game in over a fortnight for Stanley, who head to Carlisle looking for a first league win since the opening day.

A Stanley side hasn't won at Brunton Park since way back in 1956 but John Coleman will be out to mastermind a win.

This season has often been a case of fine margins and the manager has called on his players to produce a 90 minute performace to return to winning ways.[/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title="Form" tab_id="1470411712406-ac66af5e-34ebb72e-6c49658d-0122"]Stanley's only league win so far came against Doncaster on the opening  day of the season.

They've lost back to back matches in the league, against Exeter and then last weekend against Morecambe.

In midweek a changed side lost to Crewe in the Checkatrade Trophy.
