Bumper Carlisle Crowd Expected At S6

Carlisle United are set to take their biggest away following for four years to Hillsborough this weekend for the top-of-the-table clash with the Owls.

The Cumbrians are set to bring an away following of around 2,000 to the West Stand at Hillsborough on Saturday - their biggest travelling army of fans since a game at Nottingham Forest in 2006.

United have already snapped up more than 1600 tickets for the clash and have an initial allocation of 2,400 for the match.

And it could be one of the biggest away followings at Hillsborough this season - with only Huddersfield Town likely to bring more as things stand.

The Blue Army have made a good start to the npower League One season, sitting second behind Wednesday, and can go top this weekend if they pick up a first ever win at S6.

All i can say is it must be the same bloke who announced the subs at Hillsborough this afternoon, that does the pre-match team news on official site.

It was on the after match interview with irvine, he said he thinks he'll be available for plymouth next weekend.

Dont worry chaps Mellor has signed a 1 year contract if you like to call it that.It means he is on loan to us for a year.He is not going anywhere,infact he wants to stay beyond the year. I did not go today (two on the spin now) was we at the races or worst than last week.If were going to have a season bleep lets get it out the way now.What annoys me the quality of team we have in place should walk this league,no disrepect to others but thats a fact,we should expect a draw now and then but to get turned over in your own yard is a big NO NO, (Come lads the crap rubbish stops now)

Christ, were we as bad as the reports suggest? Was hoping for a response to Brentford, hopefully AI makes them sweat on the training pitch this week.
