PREVIEW | Carlisle United v Yeovil Town

The Glovers head to Cumbria in good form

10 November 2017

Rhys Browne shoots with Southend defenders in close proximity PPAUK

Darren Way's side head to Brunton Park looking to build on their four-game unbeaten run in all competitions.

Last weekend's 1-0 victory over League One outfit Southend United in the Emirates FA Cup started the month of November in good fashion, before attention reverts back to league matters on Saturday. 

The Glovers prepare for the 674-mile round trip to Carlisle in good spirits, with a penalty shootout victory over Chelsea Under-21s in the Checkatrade Trophy sandwiched between a draw and emphatic victory in their last two Sky Bet League Two outings. 

The Green and Whites will still be without the services of strikers Francois Zoko and Olufela Olomola who serve the second of their three-match suspensions, meaning Sam Surridge is likely to continue leading the line.

Jordan Green edges closer to a return to fitness whilst Ryan Dickson sat on the bench last Saturday following a spell on the sidelines with concussion. 

Saturday's opponents sit just one place above Town in 16th, having drawn their last three matches.

The Cumbrians reached the play-off semi-finals last season but have struggled to reproduce that form in the opening 16 matches, especially at home. 

Keith Curle's side have picked up maximum points just once at Brunton Park, but will be hoping top scorers Reggie Lambe (6) and Hallam Hope (5) can alter their fortunes. 

Way's side head north looking to end a run of 10 games without a win against United.

Town's last victory came in 2011 courtesy of Dean Bowditch and Jon Obika strikes in a 2-0 win at Brunton Park.

Nathan Smith was on target in 2016/17 as Yeovil narrowly lost 2-1 at Carlisle, before the Cumbrians completed the double in April with a 2-0 win at Huish Park.

Graham Salisbury (Lancashire) will be the man in the middle at Brunton Park. 

Saturday's fixture will be the second Town match he's officiated this season having taken charge of the 1-1 with Port Vale at Huish Park where the visitors' James Gibbons was sent off for two bookable offences.

In total, it will be Mr Salisbury's 20th match in 2017/18 having issued 75 yellow and four red cards. 

Mr Salisbury will be assisted by Barry Gordon (County Durham) and Chris Isherwood (Lancashire) with Scott Oldham (Lancashire) acting as fourth official.

Darren Way and Tom James’ pre-match thoughts can be watched in full for free on iFollow Glovers.

REPORT | Carlisle United 4-0 Yeovil Town

11 November 2017

Bevis Mugabi launches the ball forward PPAUK

Yeovil Town slumped to their first Sky Bet League Two defeat in three following a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Carlisle United at Brunton Park.

The Glovers found themselves a goal down inside the opening 10 minutes as a rasping Danny Grainger strike from range broke the deadlock against the early run of play. 

Looking like taking a one goal lead into the break it became 2-0 after 44 minutes courtesy of Hallam Hope as United took control. 

As the game ticked towards the final 15 minutes Bevis Mugabi received a straight red card for an off the ball incident which resulted in a penalty that Grainger converted for his second of the match. 

With the points ensured Shaun Miller added a fourth in stoppage time to round off an afternoon to forget for the Green and Whites. 

Darren Way made one change from the side that progressed to the Emirates FA Cup second round last weekend, with Sid Nelson coming in for Jake Gray.

There were changes amongst the substitutes, however, with Jordan Green returning from a seven-game spell on the sideline alongside Jonny Maddison who had recovered from concussion. 

Despite that positive news, the Green and Whites were left a man light on the bench in Cumbria with Ryan Dickson dropping out late on due to illness.

After a 330-mile trip to Carlisle the visitors showed no signs of lethargy, starting on the front foot and engineering a glorious chance to open the scoring after just four minutes.

Rhys Browne’s positive run through the middle was rewarded with a lucky ricochet which set Sam Surridge through on goal, only for the outstretched leg of Jack Bonham to stop the Town striker as he looked to round the home ‘keeper.

That chance came after Otis Khan was unusually found lacking a final ball after breaking to the by-line in the opening exchanges, before United issued a sucker punch. 

With seven minutes on the clock, the Cumbrians put together their first meaningful attack and came away with the opener.

Captain Grainger found too much space 25 yards from goal and picked out the top corner with a shot that would’ve beaten any goalkeeper.

Boasting the lead, Carlisle could bide their time in an attacking sense and get numbers behind the ball in defence, meaning the half petered out until the final five minutes. 

After half-an-hour of little action, the game burst into life once again as Artur Krysiak was perfectly placed to tip Shaun Miller’s well-hit strike over the bar from inside the box. 

That opportunity roused the home crowd and they were on the feat as the game ticked into the 44th minute. 

Good work from Miller wide on the right allowed the substitute to cut the ball back for Hope who directed the ball into the far corner with an inch-perfect first-time shot.

Despite a promising start from the Glovers, Way’s side trudged into the break two goals down and in need of a dramatic second-half performance. 

In order to try and achieve that, Gray and Green were introduced for Tom James and Rhys Browne as the visitors switched to 4-4-2.

Mirroring the first period, chances came straight after the restart as firstly Hope had a shot from range tipped round the post by Krysiak before an immediate chance at the other end.

Gray beat goal scorer Grainger wide on the right and weaved into the box, only for his shot to lack the required power to beat Bonham.  

Mimicking the opening 45 minutes by becoming a flat affair in the middle of half, the encounter burst back into life with 72 minutes played. 

Green went in the referee's book for a late foul only for Mugabi to be given his marching orders moments later for an altercation missed by virtually all inside the ground bar the officials. 

Adding insult to injury a spot kick was awarded as further punishment giving Carlisle's captain the platform to double his personal tally and ensure all three points. 

With the result a formality, Miller added a fourth in stoppage time to end a four-game unbeaten streak for Town, as Way's side continue to look for a consistent winning formula on their travels. 

Carlisle United: Bonham; Brown, Liddle, Hill, Grainger; Lambe (O’Sullivan 81’), Joyce, Jones, Adams (Miller 28’); Hope (Etuhu 81’), Bennett.
Subs not used: George, Miller, Parkes, Cosgrove.

Bookings: Browne 30’, Green 72’, Mugabi (73’ red)
Subs not used: Maddison, Davies, C. Smith, Santos.
