PREVIEW: A trip to the Peninsula

A closer look at the weekend opponents

18 November 2022

United and Salford sit side-by-side in the League Two table, both nicely poised on the brink of the play-off places.


The Ammies have one of the meanest defences in the division, with just 14 goals conceded in their 18 games, but they've hit a troubled run of form with just one win from the last six league outings.

They had an FA Cup first-round replay with Peterborough to contend with on Wednesday night, having battled out a stalemate with the Posh at the start of the month, and they went into that one having not managed to find the back of the net in their previous four fixtures.

The League One side largely dominated, with former United man Jack Marriott on target twice in the second half as part of a 3-0 win.

Home hasn't been where the heart is this term with their last league success on their own turf back at the end of August - a 1-0 win over Stevenage.

Off the field Gary Neville has stepped down as chief executive, with former Manchester United team-mate Nicky Butt now at the tiller.

Speaking to the club's official channels, he said: "As the club has developed with such pace it needs someone who can concentrate on it and be there every day.

"I have enjoyed my eight years and can't believe how much we have achieved in that time, and how proud I am of the hard work everyone at the club has put in to make a dream we had whilst on a train, turn into a reality.

"I will now be able to sit back and enjoy the game on match days safe in the knowledge that it is in good hands."

who watch

Experienced forward Matt Lund has scored nine times in 51 league appearances for the Ammies, with two from his 15 outings so far this season.

As they continue to look for the right attacking blend following the transfer window departure of Brandon Thomas-Asante to West Brom, Lund remains a steady option and an almost guaranteed problem for defences.

Starting or coming on from the bench, he can change games, and that's why we have him as our one to watch.

Carlisle wins


Salford wins









The Ammies registered their first victory over United in February 2022. Omari Patrick equalised after Ryan Watson had put the hosts ahead from the spot, but Matt Smith popped up to net the winner late in the day.

Watch the highlights from that game here:

United took the honours at Brunton Park in September 2021 when Jon Mellish bagged the winner after Josh Morris had levelled the first-half scores just moments before the break. Brennan Dickenson had notched the early opener.

Watch the highlights from that game here:

It was 1-1 in Salford in February 2021 with George Tanner opening the scoring for the away side with just 11 minutes on the clock. James Wilson equalised on 79 minutes to make sure the spoils were shared.

Watch the highlights from that game here:

We hosted the Ammies in December 2020 with strikes from Lewis Alessandra and Rhys Bennett putting the Blues two goals to the good. D'Ishon Bernard hit back late in the day but it was too little too late the Cumbrians took the points.

Watch the highlights from that game here:

The first meeting of these clubs was in August 2019, when the newly-promoted outfit came north for our first ever meeting. An early lead for the Blues from an Olufela Olomola goal was turned on its head as Salford's Emmanuel Dieseruvwe and Danny Whitehead scored in quick succession to put the visitors ahead as half-time approached. Stefan Scougall completed the scoring moments before the break, and that was it for the day as it ended all-square at 2-2.
