Player to watch - Marc Bridge-Wilkinson: The midfielder was one of the bright sparks for the Cumbrians in a disappointing 2008/09 campaign. Bridge-Wilkinson was more of a winger in his early days, but now often operates more centrally as a creative midfielder, weighing in with the odd crucial goal. Will be key to the Blues' hopes of a better season.

Last league meeting: Carlisle United 0, Norwich City 1 (10 October, 2009) Wes Hoolahan's fifth goal of the season was enough to give Norwich City their third successive League One victory and sent them up to sixth place in the table. Hoolahan struck after 41 minutes at Brunton Park after the Carlisle defence failed to deal with a cross from Chris Martin.
