Stanley return home for Easter Monday looking to end their winless run – and get one over a Carlisle side that has already beaten them twice this season.
The Cumbrians have triumphed in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy in Accrington before winning the league tie at Brunton Park.
Now the Reds will look to build on their impressive display with ten men at Morecambe and send their visitors home empty handed.
They finished in third place in the Conference in the 2004/05 season and beat Stevenage in the play-off final at the Britannia Stadium 1-0, with the goal coming from Peter Murphy.
The following season they made it back to back promotions by winning the League Two title in their first season back in the football league.
They have then spent the last eight seasons in League One, before being relegated at the end of last season after finishing in 22nd place in League One.
50 year old Curle was appointed as the Cumbrians manager in September after the club sacked Graham Kavanagh. Curle is in his fourth managerial role, after previously having spells at Mansfield Town, Chester and Torquay United.
Prior to being a manager Curle had a very successful playing career, making over 700 appearances for a number of clubs, including Bristol City, Wimbledon and Wolverhampton Wanderers. However, he will perhaps be most known for his spell at Manchester City where he made 174 appearances and scored 11 goals.
Stanley have 18 victories, with the other nine ending in draws.
Only one of those Stanley wins has come in recent years, a 3-2 victory in the JPT in 2011, and they are without a league victory over United since 1961.
They last met in November, with Derek Asamoah scoring the only goal in a 1-0 Carlisle win.
Stanley remain without a win in their last eight games, though half of those have resulted in draws. John Coleman’s team avoided defeat at Morecambe on Friday despire being reduced to ten men after just 41 minutes.
They sit 17th in League Two on 47 points, eight clear of the relegation zone.
Carlisle are 21st with 42 points, that’s a three point cushion to Tranmere who sit second bottom.
Keith Curle’s men are without a win in three with their last victory coming on 17th March at Northampton.
