LUFC -Carlisle United v Leeds United preview

Leeds return to their usual lunch time kick off for away games against Carlisle United this weekend after a rare 3pm start at Swindon last week.

The two clubs are very familiar with each other after meeting four times last season including the Play off semi final when Leeds won in dramatic circumstances.

Form
Carlisle lost their first game of the season last weekend when going down 2-1 at Scunthorpe United.
Leeds won on their travels 3-1 at Swindon Town playing over 80 minutes with only ten men.

So far this season at home Carlisle have an excellent home record winning three out of three. They beat Crewe Alexandra 4-2, Yeovil Town 4-1 and Southend United 2-1.

Leeds have so far beat Scunthorpe United 2-1, Swindon Town 3-1 and drew at Yeovil Town 1-1.
