WEEKEND PREVIEW

City are in the Division 1 Cup tomorrow with a game at the D Marks Carpets Stadium against Eccleshall (ko 3.00). This match, kindly sponsored by Chris Kelso, offers the winners the chance to progress into the quarter-finals. Eccleshall are now in Division 1 South, following league re-organisation, but they have twice visited Carlisle in previous seasons with City winning by a single goal on each occasion.

Eccleshall are currently 16th in their league, with 16 points from 17 games, but it is notable that their away record is far superior to what they have done at home. They are also travelling on the back of a fine 5-1 win at New Mills last Saturday. Their leading scorer is Daniel Needham with 8 goals in 13 games.

City will be without Kyle Armstrong who is suspended for accruing five cautions, but Tyran Taylor and James Earl are both eligible after serving their bans. Skipper Josh Simpson is still absent with injury but defender Peter Allison may be fit to return.

Special guests at the game tomorrow are the players of Carlisle City Deaf FC, who play their game on Sunday at the Harraby 3G when they meet Doncaster Deaf Reserves (ko 2.00). All spectators are welcome and we really hope that many will turn out in support.

In the County League tomorrow, City Reserves meet Cockermouth, ko 1.15 on the training pitch at the D Marks Carpets Stadium. It is the second meeting in successive weeks after Cockermouth knocked City out of the Benevolent cup last Saturday.

WEEKEND PREVIEW
In the Hallmark Security league tomorrow, City travel to St Helens Town (ko 3.00). This game will be on the 3G pitch at the Arcoframe Stadium, where City scored two injury-time goals last season to win 3-2. This fixture has a history of dramatic outcomes, with two other games between the sides also ending 4-3 to City.
City have two players suspended tomorrow, as Tyran Taylor and James Earl both picked up their 5th caution of the season last week-end against Daisy Hill. Skipper Josh Simpson is likely to be out for a further month with the injury he sustained at Ashton Town. St. Helens are currently on a 5-game losing run, since beating Daisy Hill 4-2 on 13th October. The 8 games played at St Helens this season have brought a total of 45 goals so it is likely to be an entertaining affair tomorrow.
In the Benevolent Cup tomorrow, City Reserves are at home to Cockermouth, ko 1.30, and this game is on the training pitch at the D Marks Carpets Stadium.

MATCH REPORT FROM YESTERDAY
A report on yesterday's 6-3 win over Daisy Hill is here.

POSTED 9th NOVEMBER 2018

WEEKEND PREVIEW

In the Hallmark Security League tomorrow , ko 3.00, City entertain Daisy Hill. The visitors are struggling in 3rd-bottom place, with two wins and three draws from 15 games, although those two wins have come in the last three games, against Garstang and AFC Darwen. The improvement in recent form might well be due to the return of goal-scoring striker Ashley Stott, who has notched 7 times in 5 games.
City’s form has taken something of a dip with just one win in the last 5 games. It is hoped there could be a return to the side tomorrow for Tyran Taylor and James Earl. Special guests at the game tomorrow are the players from Stanwix under 7s, along with their parents.
Admission tomorrow is £4 adults and £2 concessions. Hot food and drinks will be on sale at the Little Griddle, who are also programme sponsors tomorrow.
