Port Vale return to Sky Bet League Two action on Saturday afternoon as they make the trip north to Carlisle United, but what happened when the two sides last faced each other?
Brunton Park was once again the venue back in August 2016, but it was the hosts who came out on top in the League Cup, with Vale falling to a 2-1 defeat.
Charlie Wyke and Shaun Miller ensured United went into half-time with a deserved two-goal lead, but Vale pulled one back five minutes into the second half courtesy of Anthony Grant.
The Valiants pushed for an equaliser, but it wasn’t to be as they crashed out of the competition at the earliest stage.
Vale did come out on top in the last league meeting, winning 2-1 at Vale Park to secure three points in League One - Ben Williamson and Tom Pope scoring to cancel out Courtney Meppen-Walter’s opener.
