Smack bang in the middle of the table it's been a steady start for one of last season's relegated sides. Hard to beat - they've lost three of their ten league games so far - two of those defeats have come on their own patch in the space of their last three outings at Gresty Road.

Last weekend's reverse at the hands of Mansfield was particularly hard to take, with the Stags netting twice in the last six minutes to come from behind to claim the spoils.

Crewe started the league season looking strong, with three wins from four, but they were dealt a blow when midfielder Charlie Colkett was ruled out for up to three months with a hamstring injury.

Cardiff youngster Eli King was immediately brought in on-loan to counter that loss. Last season's top scorer Chris Long has alos been an absentee, reportedly with a nasty bout of food poisoning not helping matters at all.

who watch

Forward Courtney Baker-Richardson has seven goals from 12 appearances, with one each from his last two games against Mansfield and Crawley. 

He scored eight in 32 games for Newport last season, and has kicked things off well with his new club.

Clearly feeling confident, he'll need to watched.

It was a high-scoring meeting at Gresty Road on 1 January 2020 with the Alex netting four times. Jack Iredale scored the consolation for the Blues.

Watch the highlights from that game here:

Our October 2019 meeting here at Brunton Park saw the visitors race to a two-goal lead before the break. Hallam Hope and Christie Elliott got us right back into it, but Crewe finished strongly with two goals in the last 15 minutes which saw them take the points.

Watch the highlights from that game here:


We were at Gresty Road twice during the 2018/19 season, with the last meeting between these teams coming in February 2019. Chris Porter got the Alex off to an explosive start with three minutes on the clock, and the afternoon took another downward turn when Jamie Devitt was given his marching orders with just 20 minutes of the game having passed by. Gary Miller bagged a beauty to level things up before the break, but former-Blue Shaun Miller made sure the points stayed at home when he came off the bench to score the winner.

Watch the highlights from that game here: 

We were down in Crewe just a few months earlier for a first round FA Cup meeting. The Blues missed a penalty but won the game in dramatic fashion when keeper Ben Garratt got his bearings wrong as he smashed a poor clearance right at Jamie Devitt in time added on. The shocked stopper could do nothing as the rebound found its way into his bottom corner.

Watch the highlights from that game here:

Our first meeting in 2018/19 was at the end of August, just five games into the campaign. It was a match of ups and downs for the Blues as they played good football, with Hope and Yates going close early in the piece. The down side for the Blues was the loss of Grainger and Fryer to injury, but Ashley Nadesan left everyone smiling when he grabbed the winner and his first goal of the season with 20 minutes left to play.

Watch the highlights from that game here:


Looking back to the 2017/18 season and the away game went the way of the Blues with goals from Danny Grainger [2], Reggie Lambe and Hallam Hope added to by an own goal from former-Carlisle centre back Michael Raynes, which combined to give United a comfortable 5-0 away victory back in the September of that campaign.

The home game in the January was a much closer affair, with a late strike from Sam Cosgrove the difference between the sides.

Ross JoyceOur referee for this game is Mr Ross Joyce. Ross has taken charge of seven games so far this season and has shown 19 yellow cards and two reds.

He was in Carlisle in April 2022 for our 1-0 home win over Mansfield. Omari Patrick scored the second half winner and the hosts had four players booked in what was a bit of a slog of a game - Jack Armer, Brennan Dickenson, Omari Patrick and Dynel Simeu.

We saw Ross at the Globe Arena in November 2021 when goals from Kelvin Mellor and Jordan Gibson secured progression to the knockout stages for the Blues in the Papa John's Trophy. No Carlisle names were taken that night.

Prior to that he was the man in the middle for a tetchy encounter with Bolton Wanderers on Boxing Day in 2020. Aaron Hayden, Lewis Alessandra and Omari Patrick helped us to storm into a three-goal lead on what was a terrible day weather wise, but George Thomason, Nathan Delfouneso and Peter Kioso used the gale force wind to their advantage to peg us back. Kioso was sent off in time added on for the game, with Paul Farman, Rhys Bennett, Joe Riley and Jon Mellish having their names taken for the home side.

He was also at Brunton Park in October 2020 for our 3-1 home win over Morecambe. Jon Mellish and George Tanner added to an own goal from Songo'o as the Blues ran out as convincing 3-1 victors, and Joe Riley was the only home yellow to be shown. 

Ross was with us in March 2019 for our long away trip to Rodney Parade. Goals either side of the break sunk the Blues, and Anthony Gerrard had his name written down on the day.

He was in Cumbria for our December 2019 2-1 home win over Macclesfield. Hallam Hope and Jerry Yates scored our goals and Gerrard, Devitt and Yates were the Carlisle names which went in the book.

The first time we saw him that same season was for the Carabao Cup meeting with Blackburn Rovers in August 2019. Hallam Hope scored United's goal, but it was an emphatic win for Rovers on the night as braces from Bradley Dack and Adam Armstrong were complemented by a neat finish from Kasey Palmer. Kelvin Etuhu was the only Carlisle yellow card shown.

Match Reports

MATCH REPORT: United 0 - 0 Crewe

Report from the Saturday afternoon home game

1 October 2022

United were back on home turf following two tough away trips with Crewe Alexandra back in Cumbria for the first time in three years.

Manager Paul Simpson went with the same starters for a third game in a row, having taken four points from a possible six from the past week.

Morgan Feeney and Omari Patrick were on the bench, following injury absences, with Ryan Carr and Jack Ellis stepping down.

United kicked towards the Warwick and into the blustery wind from the off and it was never going to be easy as the ball caught and held up every time they looked to get it forward.

The home side defended well, and they created the first opening when Guy floated the ball wide to Back. He put Gibson on a run down the right flank, but his initial cross was cut out. Moxon was there to latch onto the loose ball and, encouraged by the crowd, he let fly with his right boot. It took a deflection and angled past the post.

The corner was nodded clear at the back stick, but Back was able to nudge it into the mix as it came his way. Armer was a whisker away from finishing it off as it skipped off the surface in front of his boot.

Excellent movement from Moxon, Gibson and Back saw them pass their way into a dangerous area, with Gibson the one to step out and deliver. Dennis challenged but Offord got enough on it to take it away from his head.

A surging run from Agyei earned a corner when his cross on the run was cut out, and Mellor pulled off his marker to nod it into the six-yard box. Holy came off his line smartly to grasp it.

Closing down and harrying almost paid dividend when United overturned possession high up the pitch. Dennis was suddenly clean through, but the offside flag was quickly raised.

More pressing brought panic at the back for the away team when Brook lost out to the energetic Fin Back. Dennis fed it to Moxon, who picked out Armer, and his cross begged to be met. McDonald got there first and the lines were cleared.

Crewe were on the attack when Mellor stepped over the halfway line with purpose, and Agyei took over with an effort from distance. Holy had it covered. 

That sparked a better spell for the Alex and Williams got the ball out of his feet with a run out of his own territory. Sambou asked for it, and his rifled volley was stopped by Holy, who used his body to good effect. Mellish helped it on its way.

Sambou put a 30-yard free kick into the wall as chances remained at a premium, but United almost provided a spark when Guy spread it to Back just before the break. Gibson helped out, but Back took matters into his own hands with a touch and a delivery. Dennis glanced a header from 12-yards but it fizzed past the upright.

The Cumbrians upped the pace and another testing cross had Whelan interested, as he lunged after it with Offord on his shoulder. The defender got there first, and that left Moxon to send the corner in. That eventually came to Dennis but the header was a difficult one and Okonkwo gathered it into his chest as it dropped out of the sky.

Whelan was there to clear from an Adebisi cross at the start of the second period, before it could become anything more meaningful, but it was Gibson who provided a real test when he put his laces through a backheel from Whelan. It had venom and power, from all of 30-yards out, and Okonkwo had to dive low to beat it away.

A wicked, dipping, inswinger of a corner from Moxon had to be cleared from almost off the line as the keeper was left rooted to the spot, with netither side quite managing to find the next gear, and Patrick was sent into the fray by the home manager just before the hour as the game remained tight.

Crewe weren't too far away from finding a way through when Uwakwe clipped a decent set piece into the area after Huntington had felled Thomas. McDonald jumped to meet it but his header was never going to trouble the target.

Better passing from United with Gibson on the right wing invited Guy to send it in, and it appeared that Armer was going to get there until the wind blew it off course.

Most of the action remained in the middle portion of the pitch, with Sambou wild when he had half a chance as he tried to shrug his way past Whelan.

Mellish was moved into midfield for the final 17 minutes of normal time, with a defensive back four employed, and Patrick tried his luck as he shielded the ball before cutting back into space. He went for a curled poke but the stopper watched it fall into his gloves.

Carlisle almost hit on the counter when Dennis latched onto a pass from Moxon, and Back took the delivery on first time with a flighted clip. Yet again a gust of wind made it easier for Okonkwo to deal with.

Crewe had an outlet through Uwakwe, who did well to get into the box, but Agyei was wasteful with a poor connection that took it into the Warwick.

A late corner from Uwakwe fell to King, who was unmarked, but he rushed his volley and blue shirts closed ranks before he could recover to take the shot on.

Agyei then bent a long-range free kick past the post bang on 90 minutes, and Harris won a corner at the other end when his delivery was diverted. Moxon fizzed it, as did Guy when he volleyed. McDonald provided the last block of the day.
