SCENE-SETTER...

Neil Cox's side come into the match on the back of a 0-0 home draw against Crawley Town on Good Friday, which was our fourth draw in the last five fixtures.

Away from home, his team are unbeaten in three as well and will be looking to extend that with victory at Brunton Park.

TEAM NEWS...

Right-back Jordan Clarke will be assessed after missing the Good Friday game as a precaution with a tight thigh, while forward Kevin van Veen will also be looked at ahead of the match after undergoing an injection on his knee.

Left-back Junior Brown has been ruled out for five-to-six weeks with the hamstring injury that forced him off against Bradford City, while centre-back George Taft is ahead of schedule with his recovery from an ankle injury but probably won't be available for a couple of weeks.

Their fellow defender Harrison McGahey (thigh) is back running on the training ground and should return to full training at the end of this week, while attacker Jordan Hallam has undergone an injection on the hamstring injury he suffered against Oldham Athletic and will be assessed again in a couple of weeks.

Striker Aaron Jarvis (hamstring) is set to miss the rest of the season, while midfielder George Hornshaw and goalkeeper Adam Kelsey are both expected to be out for the remainder of the campaign too following ankle surgery.

THE OPPOSITION...

Carlisle have won their last two matches 2-0, winning at Southend on Saturday and at home to Crawley last Tuesday. Those two wins have boosted their play-off push and they'll be seeking another as they look to close in on the top seven. Prior to then, they'd gone four matches without a win.

Jon Mellish tops their scoring charts with 11 goals to his name, with Lewis Alessandra following on seven.

They've been two of the mainstays of the side, with goalkeeper Paul Farman, defender Aaron Hayden and midfielder Callum Guy also regulars all season.

PAST MEETINGS...

We met at the Sands Venue Stadium in September, with Jordan Hallam striking the decisive goal in a 1-0 success.
