Last Time We Met Carlisle United

20 August 2018

Vale make the trip to Cumbria on Tuesday night as they face Carlisle United in Sky Bet League Two, but what happened the last time the two teams met during the 2017/18 campaign?

In what was the Valiants’ last game on home soil last season, Carlisle United came out on top courtesy of second-half strikes from Ashley Nadesan and Hallam Hope.

Dior Angus had given Neil Aspin’s men the lead on his first start for the club, but it was the Cumbrians who rallied during the final 45 minutes. Vale also had Antony Kay sent off late on.

The last visit to Brunton Park was a positive one for the Valiants though, with Tyrone Barnett and Tom Pope on the scoresheet back in December 2017. 

Richie Bennett pulled one back for Keith Curle’s side late on, but Ryan Boot was on hand in the Vale goal to deny the hosts, meaning the Valiants held on to secure all three points.
