Match Preview: Carlisle United v Macclesfield Town

29 December 2018

Macclesfield Town head to Brunton Park this afternoon to face Carlisle United, as we look to round off 2018 in style against The Cumbrians.

After Wednesday’s victory over Notts County, Sol and the team made it four wins from six league matches, a run of form we will be looking to continue going into Saturday’s tie against our high-flying hosts.

Here is what Sol had to say ahead of the game:


The lads are set to be without Callum Evans (ankle), Elliott Durrell (knee) and Rhys Taylor (hip), yet whichever eleven are chosen will be giving their all for the cause.

As always, your support will be as crucial as ever and we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at Brunton Park, where we will be looking to overcome Carlisle for the second time this season.

Carlisle come into the match after a convincing 6-0 victory over Oldham and now sit in 9th place in the Sky Bet League Two standings after accumulating 36 points from their 24 games this season.

Our hosts have hit form this month, winning three of their four league games in December, scoring 13 times in that run.

Here is what opposition defender Garry Liddle had to say ahead of the match:

“You only get a new manager when things aren’t going too well, so Sol Campbell has come in and he’s got them picking up good results.

“They’ll have a different style of play from last time we played them, but we’ll do our homework and we’ll be going out to make it four wins in a row.”
