Pre-Match View
“I’m really proud of the performance. I said to the players after the game that for some of the group, if you consider where they were when we played Sunderland a couple of months ago to where we are now, it’s a great improvement.” Steven Pressley, speaking after Carlisle’s midweek win over Blackpool in the Trophy.
