The Reds return to the Wham Stadium for Stanley tomorrow as they host Carlisle United.

John Coleman’s team will be keen to make amends for defeat last weekend with a home win.

Stanley are back at home and hoping to start a new unbeaten run after their last was ended by Cheltenham.

The Reds had gone three without defeat before losing at Whaddon Road.

Now they face promotion chasing Carlisle looking for a repeat of the FA Cup win over Luton in their last outing.

The 3-0 reverse at Cheltenham was Stanley’s first defeat in four games in all competitions.

At home they’re two without defeat having drawn with Hartlepool in the league and beaten Luton in the cup.

Coleman’s men are 21st in the table, two points above the relegation places and three from 18th.

Team News

Home fans are likely to get their first look at Fulham loanee Marek Rodak.

The Slovakian made his debut at Cheltenham and will make his Wham Stadium bow if he keeps his place.

Coleman has no new injury news but Scott Brown begins his four match ban after his appeal against his weekend red card was turned down.

Carlisle have been among the pacesetters in League Two all season and sit in the third automatic promotion spot ahead of kick off.

Manager Keith Curle recruited extensively in the summer and his team hit the ground running, going on a lengthy unbeaten run.

Things have proven a little trickier in 2017 though and the Cumbrians arrive without a win in their last three matches.

Defender Keith Curle captained Manchester City in the Premier League in his playing days and also lists the likes of Bristol Rovers, Torquay, Reading and Wolves on his CV.

He was player-manager at Mansfield Town from 2002-5 and also managed Chester, Torquay and Notts County before becoming Carlisle boss in 2014.
