Fixture: Carlisle United vs Fleetwood Town

Competition: Papa Johns Trophy

Date: Tuesday 20 September 2022

Kick-off: 19:00

Venue: Brunton Park, Warwick Road, Carlisle, Cumbria, CA1 1LL



Town head into their Papa John's Trophy clash after recording a 1-1 draw against Charlton Athletic, in their Sky Bet League One fixture on Saturday.

Fleetwood Town travel to Brunton Park on Tuesday, to take on Carlisle United in the Papa Johns Trophy Group Stage. Fleetwood's first game in the competition ended with a 1-1 draw against Barrow. Fleetwood took the lead through summer signing Brendan Wiredu, however Barrow's John Rooney scored the equaliser minutes before the half-time interval.

With the score being level at full-time, both teams claimed a point and the match went to a penalty shootout to decide who got a bonus point. Barrow won 5-4 and earned that bonus point.

The Blues head into Tuesday's game after a 2-1 home victory against AFC Wimbledon, with Callum Guy and Kristian Dennis scoring on the day, which saw the Cumbrian side move up to 13th in the Sky Bet League Two table.

Carlisle United tasted defeat in their previous Papa John's Trophy fixture, as Manchester United Under-21s beat Paul Simpson's side 2-1. Charlie McNeill opened the scoring for the Red Devils five minutes before half-time, before Carlisle found the equaliser as former Blackpool midfielder Jamie Devitt scored on the hour mark.

Reds' man Omari Forson scored the winning goal just minutes later for the Reds, which meant defeat for Barrow, who are currently bottom of the group table after the first round of matches.
