CITY SUFFER AFTER MISSED CHANCES
City went down 3-0 at Litherland REMYCA yesterday after dominating much of the first half. City could have been ahead within seconds as Bradbury burst through but shot just wide. City then won a 14th-minute penalty but the spot-kick hoodoo this season continued as Renyard became the latest of many City players to miss from the spot.
Bradbury continued to be prominent in the game but City's young keeper Lewis Casson also produced one fine save to block a header at close range.
After the break, Renyard again had a fine chance to score but he shot weakly wide as keeper Morrow came out to meet him. Home striker Quirk then scored a hat-trick in five minutes as a fine drive beat Casson from 20 yards, followed by a speculative attempt from 45 yards that looped up in the air and beat the back-pedalling City keeper. His third was a penalty with some debate that the offence was not in the penalty box.
City were made to rue the missed chances and they have now failed to score in three of the last four games.

LATE LATE DRAMA
Two injury-time goals gave City a 3-2 win at St Helens Town yesterday in the Hallmark Security league. City made a disastrous start in the 5th minute when Addison slashed wildly at a corner and diverted the ball into his own net (how this goal has been credited to Luke Edwards is dubious in the extreme).
City did recover to create chances in the first half, and McCartney should have scored only to head wide from a good position. The home side also threatened with Brady looking particularly lively. Into the second half, and City created and missed several chances, with Renyard the worst culprit as home keeper Yong saved on more than one occasion.
City did equalise in the 64th minute as a ball was headed into the box and McCartney headed in from close range. City then seemed to press the self-destruct button again in the 76th minute as a harmless-looking ball was allowed to bounce around, and Diggle beat Coward to it with the ball trickling into the goal.
Then came the drama as City manager James Tose brought himself on towards the end for Hugh Hodgson. The clock had just ticked over 90 minutes when Renyard's free-kick was headed back across by Greenslade, with Tose on hand to score from five yards. There were home protests of a push on a defender that were disregarded by the referee.
Just when it seemed as if both teams would take a point, Tose played the ball through for McCartney to run on and confidently shoot past Yong, for his 12th of the season.

LEAGUE GAME ON 3G TOMORROW
City travel to St Helens Town tomorrow in the Hallmark Security league (k.o. 3.00). It will be the first visit to the new 3G pitch at Ruskin Drive. Obviously, the artificial surface should ensure the game goes ahead, barring really extreme weather conditions.

The scheduled County League game tomorrow between City Reserves and Cockermouth is off due to current pitch conditions.

WEEKEND PREVIEW
In the Hallmark Security league tomorrow, City are at home to AFC Blackpool (k.o. 3.00). Obviously, the weather is a concern although there has been no snow in Carlisle overnight. A hard frost is forecast this evening and that may cause problems. We will update on the conditions when we can.
Blackpool are having a fine season, up in 5th place, and they have a fine away record with 20 points from 10 away games. So, a good game is expected if we can beat the weather conditions.

GREAT AWAY WIN FOR CITY
City won 4-1 yesterday at Atherton LR in the Hallmark Security league, including a hat-trick from Michael Slack. The match report from Will Stuart is here.

POSTED 1st DECEMBER 2017

WEEKEND PREVIEW
In the Hallmark Security league tomorrow, City travel to Atherton LR ko. 3.00 pm. Astonishingly, this is actually the fifth scheduled game between the two sides already this season. There were two postponements at Atherton of the LWC Drinks cup tie, which was then switched to Gillford Park, and Atherton won 2-1. In the Macron cup, City won 4-0 at Crilly Park.
The weather has obviously been difficult this week, and Atherton's game on Tuesday at home to Bacup was called off. We will update if we hear of any problems with the game.

In the 2nd round of the Benevolent Cup tomorrow, City Reserves go to Workington Athletic- k.o. 2.00 at the Lakes College 3G.

WEEKEND PREVIEW
In the Hallmark Security league tomorrow, City travel to Prestwich Heys (k.o. 3.00). It will be another difficult game against the side currently 3rd in the league table, and also the leading scorers in the division.

An interview after Monday's game at Widnes, with assistant manager Jonny Allan, can be read here

City Reserves are scheduled to be at home tomorrow v Workington Athletic (k.o. 2.00) but this game is very doubtful following the weather conditions this week, which has left standing water on the pitch then followed by overnight frost.

For similar reasons as stated above, Carlisle City Deaf's scheduled EDF Cup game v St Albans Deaf will not be able to be staged at Gillford Park. An alternative venue is being sought.

CITY UNLUCKY ON PENALTIES
City were so unlucky to lose a penalty shoot-out at Widnes last night in round 2 of the MACRON cup. City dominated the first half and took the lead with a deflected strike from Mathew Read, as well as hitting the woodwork on two other occasions. Widnes did come more into the game after the break, but City looked to be holding on until the 89th minute when the home side equalised from a goal that had a strong hint of offside in the build-up.
The game went straight to penalties, and Widnes won 3-1 in the shoot-out. The match report from Will Stuart is here.
