Carlisle Trip For U's

McGreal and Co. face Cumbrians in latest League Two test

14 December 2018

Colchester United make the long trip north this weekend, as they take on Carlisle United.

The U's will be looking to continue their good recent form, having won six of the last nine league fixtures.

Two of those wins have come on the road, with 1-0 successes at both Forest Green and Morecambe helping to get the U's into the top three in the table.

Carlisle sit ten places lower, and will be hoping to turn around their home form - John McGreal is expecting a tough test up near the Scottish border.

"They have a squad that is much better than their current league position suggests, and we certainly know that we'll have to be right on our game to get a positive result up there.

"It's no mean feat to beat the likes of Newport County and that's what they did in one of their recent home games.

"It'll be difficult, but we're going up there in good form ourselves and will be fighting all the way for the three points."
