Match Preview: Bury vs Carlisle United

21 September 2018

Bury will host Carlisle United at the Energy Check Stadium at Gigg Lane on Saturday looking to continue their superb home form.

In their last game on home soil, Ryan Lowe's side were 4-0 victors over Grimsby Town.

They then followed that up with an away victory over Swindon Town to make it 3 wins in a row in the League.

Lowe knows his side are in good form and need to continue in the same vein: "We're not going to take Carlisle lightly, we know what they're all about but, ultimately, we've got to worry about us.

"If we can do what we've been doing of late and stick to our plan, then we won't go far wrong".

Callum McFadzean was full of praise for the supporters, and knows how important their backing is: "Since I've been here, they've been top class. The home support, the away support, they're all behind us and understand the style of play we want.

"They've been really supportive of us – they're the 12th man".
