Preview | Carlisle United (a)

15 September 2017

Sky Bet League 2 - Brunton Park - Saturday 16th September 2017 – KO 3pm

Team News: 
Jamie Stephens and Curtis Weston both remain side-lined with their knee injuries. Richard Brindley (foot), Elliott Johnson (knee) and Dave Tarpey (knee) all have long term injuries.

Andre Blackman will serve the last match of his three game suspension after being sent off at Swindon Town.

Last Time We Met:

10-man Barnet fought back to earn a point at Brunton Park in January of this year.

The Cumbrians took the lead in the 29th minute as Josh Vickers could only parry Jason Kennedy’s effort straight into the path of Charlie Wyke who scored his 18th of the season.

The task got tougher after the break as Simeon Akinola got a straight red for a a challenge on Michael Raynes.

But a foul on Elliott Johnson in the Carlisle box gave Barnet the chance to equalise from the spot, which John Akinde took full advantage of.

The Barnet number 9 could have won it at the end, a defensive mix up meant the ball ended up at his feet inside the six yard box, but his effort went just over the bar.


Keith Curle was confirmed as the manager of Carlisle United on September 19, 2014.

Before Carlisle, Curle returned to management with Notts County after assisting Neil Warnock with great success at both Crystal Palace and QPR as First Team Coach.

Curle had managerial spells at Mansfield Town, Chester City and Torquay United before joining up with Warnock.

Their most notable feat was guiding QPR to the Barclays Premier League as champions of the Championship in 2010/11.

At Notts County he enjoyed a successful start, winning his first four games in charge. The Magpies narrowly missed out on a place in the play-offs in 2011/12, by goal difference, as they finished 7th in League One. Keith remained with the club until February 2013, before taking over at Carlisle in September 2014

Curle, a former England international, enjoyed an illustrious playing career, with spells at Wimbledon, Manchester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers amongst others.


Midfielder Nicky Adams signed a two-year deal with United in June 2016 which keeps him at Brunton Park until the summer of 2018.

He has featured in every game so far this season for the Cumbrians. Last season, he scored three goals and registered 19 assists has he helped guide Carlisle to the League Two play-offs.

Bolton-born Adams was most recently with 2016 League Two title winners Northampton Town where he became the player to record ‘most assists’ across the division in what was a hugely successful campaign on both a personal and club level.

Last Time Out:

Second half goals from Duckens Nazon and Peter Vincenti saw Coventry City beat Carlisle United 2-0 at the Ricoh Arena on Tuesday night.

After a tight 45 minutes, it was the hosts who took the lead after the break through Nuzon who latched on to a perfect, defence splitting pass and fired past George.

In the final few minutes Coventry made it safe when Vincenti, who was unmarked at the far post, mishit a volley that beat ‘keeper.

Carlisle Utd (4-4-1-1): Shamal George; James Brown, Mark Ellis (67 mins, for Gary Liddle), Tom Parkes, Danny Grainger; Jason Kennedy, Luke Joyce, Kelvin Etuhu (76 mins, for Hallam Hope), Nicky Adams (64 mins, Richie Bennett); Jamie Devitt, Shaun Miller.

Substitutes (not used): Jack Bonham (goalkeeper), Mike Jones, Samir Nabi, Reggie Lambe.

Report | Carlisle United 1-1 Barnet FC

16 September 2017

Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro's 7th minute strike was cancelled out late on by a wonder strike from Shaun Miller.

Barnet started strongly and took a deserved lead seven minutes in. Craig Ross’ long ball was headed on by Shaq Coulthirst and sent Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro racing through on goal. His first effort struck the post but he tapped home the rebound.

Carlisle responded strongly, but a clever flick from Reggie Lambe a couple of minutes later didn’t trouble Craig Ross in the Barnet goal.

Just after the half hour mark, Vilhete sprayed the ball out wide Harry Taylor who delivered a dangerous cross. Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro got onto the end of it, but headed over the bar.

Just after, Coulthirst laid off Jamal Campbell-Ryce who curled an effort towards goal but it was saved by George.

Two minutes later, Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro delivered a low cross which rolled across the face of goal, inches away from the feet of the on rushing David Tutonda.

Ten minutes after the restart, Shaq Coulthirst forced Shamal George into a save away to his left.

On the hour, David Tutonda delivered a dangerous cross but there was no man in amber on the end of it.

As we entered the final 15 minutes, Carlisle stepped up their performance and started pressurising the Barnet goal, Bennett heading over the bar.

Shaun Miller’s downward header minutes later caused havoc in the Barnet area but the Bees managed to scramble clear.

With 5 minutes to go, Carlisle drew level through a spectacular bicycle kick from Shaun Miller which looped over Craig Ross.

In stoppage time, Akinde raced through on goal and had an effort blocked, but picked up an injury in the process.

At the other end, Michael Nelson put in a superb tackle to deny Bennett getting a shot away.

With almost the final action of the match, Craig Ross pulled off a superb save, clawing the ball back off the goal line from a bullet header.
