Carlisle United are hunting down Stevenage in League Two this weekend with the club back down in third after the latter won their midweek game as the Cumbrians welcome Grimsby Town to Brunton Park this Saturday.
Carlisle are having a magnificent season so far in 2022/23. The club were up into second as of last weekend, but with a win for Stevenage this week, they are back down in third and also have played one more game than the second-placed side. It doesn't mean there isn't a chance they can make it back into second this weekend, as a win for them and a loss for Stevenage will push them into second.
Carlisle have now lost just seven times and after a fantastic 5-2 win over Crawley Town the other week, they head into this game on a two-game winning run once more after previously failing to win their past three. Joel Senior, Omari Patrick, Owen Moxon, Morgan Feeney and Jon James Alexander Mellish all scored a goal last time out in that 5-2 win, as the Cumbrians took a 5-0 lead away from home at one stage.
Grimsby stunned Premier League side Southampton in midweek and their 2-1 win at St. Mary's wasn't just their best win in many years, but it also means the club are the first fourth tier side to make it to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup since Cambridge United in 1990.
