They then defeated Macclesfield 4-2 away, Chesterfield 3-1 away and Bradford 3-0 at home to reach this stage.

Leeds
Leeds have been drawn at home in their previous three rounds in the competition also all against League Two opposition.

They received a bye in the first round, then defeated, Darlington 2-1, Grimsby 3-1 and Accrington Stanley 2-0 to reach the Northern final.

History

Leeds have the better record at Carlisle and have won on their last two visits, both by the same score line 2-0.
