Carlisle United's Capital One Cup heroes return to Sky Bet League 2 action this weekend when they host Newport County.

Keith Curle's Carlisle are five unbeaten in Sky Bet League 2, winning three of those, while the visiting Newport are now the only Football League club without a victory to their name in 2015/16.

They halted a run of five straight defeats last time out, though, by drawing 0-0 with Dagenham & Redbridge, and did the double over Carlisle last term in their first ever meetings.
