Video & Quotes from the boss ahead of Saturday's game...

  • On a testing few days...

"It is what it is, we have to crack on. I think we are ready, we are playing those two teams in good time. I think we are in a good place. We keep getting better and we are ready for those trips.

"One at a time, we focus on Carlisle first. They have had a good start to the season, like ourselves, one point between us. You look at their stats, our stats, there is not much in it. It should be a good game.”

  • On a settled looking XI...

“We have got a good squad. I do not mind changing every now and then, but I like settled teams, especially when you have a new team together. It is hard enough to get that team settled together, and if you keep chopping and changing I think the message gets lost.

"I try to keep a certain squad as long as they are fit and play a certain way. We want to keep the same habits, in possession and out of possession. Hopefully we keep everybody fit.”

  • On Carlisle’s biggest threats…

“Carlisle are a solid team. John Sheridan is a good manager. He gets his team very organised defensively. I have watched the last three games, solid four-four-two or four-four-one-one.

"It is a wide pitch and they use the width very well. We have got to be aware of that as compared to The Lamex, it is a lot wider than what we are used to. We have got to make sure our unit is compact out of possession. In possession, it will suit us in the way we try to play with the big pitch.”
