Match Preview: Carlisle United vs Macclesfield Town

2 November 2019

The Silkmen make the journey to Carlisle this weekend as we prepare to face The Cumbrians at Brunton Park in our latest Sky Bet League Two clash.

Daryl and the team will be looking to make up for lost time following our postponed fixture against Bradford last weekend with a good performance against the Blues.

Silkmen TV caught up with Daryl to get his thoughts ahead of the game:

As for our hosts, Carlisle come into the match on the back of a 1-1 draw away at Leyton Orient last weekend; with a second half Jack Iredale strike enough to secure a point at Brisbane Road.

Their draw with Orient also saw defender Byron Webster pick up his fifth yellow card of the season and he is therefore suspended for this weekend’s match.

This will not come as welcome news for Steven Pressley’s side as they have not recorded a clean sheet in their last six matches in all competitions.

Whilst the Cumbrians come into the match having scored the same amount of goals as Macc with 16 in the league to date, they have shipped ten more with 28 conceded in their opening 16 league matches.

This leaves them in 20th position in the Sky Bet League Two standings, having accumulated 15 points.

Despite having failed to record a league victory in the month of October, they overcame Blackpool in the Trophy, demonstrating the threat they could pose to Macc tomorrow afternoon.

Opposition manager Steven Pressley had this to say ahead of the game:

“We have to follow that [draw against Orient] up next week with another positive performance.

“I’m pleased we stopped the rot and it gives us at least a foundation to build from.

“We have to get more points on the board, we have to keep improving and working hard, keep driving this club forward.”

Match Report: Carlisle United 2-1 Macclesfield Town

2 November 2019

The Silkmen fell to defeat away at Brunton Park as a Ryan Loft goal completed a Carlisle comeback after Theo Archibald had given Macc a first half lead.

Loft closed down a Fiacre Kelleher clearance before slipping the ball past Owen Evans to condemn Macc to a narrow defeat.

Theo Archibald's opener had put Macc ahead before Carlisle equalised through Harry McKirdy just before the interval.

Macc had the better of the opening exchanges with Corey O’Keeffe doing well to get his shot off on the ten-minute mark, although it lacked the power to trouble Adam Collin in the Carlisle goal.

Our hosts responded five minutes later through a Jack Iredale strike from distance, which Owen Evans saw fly wide of his far post.

Theo Archibald was next to try his luck, but his dipping effort from distance was eventually gathered by Collin despite a threatening looking scenario with Macc attackers closing in for a potential rebound.

Carlisle then had two good chances in quick succession as they looked to open the scoring.

Mohammed Sagaf fired over from inside the Silkmen area despite being afforded what appeared to be enough space to take his time over the shot; before Olufela Olomola saw his header drift just over the Macc crossbar in Carlisle’s best spell of the half.

Archibald then put us in front with a powerful strike into the top corner of the goal after Joe Ironside saw two efforts blocked and then saved by the Carlisle back line.

Macc were awarded a penalty moments later and Ironside took the responsibility, but his spot-kick was saved by Collin.

This proved costly moments before half time as Carlisle equalised in bizarre fashion.

Corey O’Keeffe sliced his clearance from a Carlisle corner and the ball flew into Harry McKirdy and over the line to hand the Cumbrians an unlikely equaliser.

Carlisle used this momentum heading into the second period and started the better of the two sides; with their most dangerous early efforts being blocked in dramatic fashion by Fiacre Kelleher and Miles Welch-Hayes, as Sagaf and McKirdy saw their goal bound efforts cut out.

Macc then came close to regaining the lead, but Ben Stephens was judged to have been offside as he nodded the ball into the net after Theo Archibald’s deflected shot had rebounded off the crossbar.

Carlisle had a golden opportunity to snatch all three points with fifteen minutes remaining, but Hallam Hope nodded a Nathan Thomas cross just wide of Evans’ goal as Carlisle continued to press.

They eventually took the lead with less than ten minutes to play as Ryan Loft closed down Kelleher’s clearance before sliding the ball past Evans.
