Carlisle United starting to look good this March

By , April 1, 2015 4:04 am

After a string of losses in February, the month of March is starting to look much better for Carlisle United. The team managed their second victory of the month in the 2-0 success over Northampton Town.

Both goals came in the second half for Carlisle as they achieved this unlikely away victory to move themselves three points clear of the drop zone. Jason Kennedy opened the scoring after 69 minutes but it was the goal from Kyle Dempsey – after just two minutes – that made the game safe for the away team. Northampton were not exactly in the middle of a great run of form, but Carlisle were awake in order to take advantage of it.

Northampton have had just two wins in the last five matches, as the players appear to be losing concentration of the play-off places. Manager Keith Curle of Carlisle says that the team came into the match with intense concentration and preparation and it has paid rich dividends. Carlisle maybe looking for more points – but this time at home – when they take on yet another team in the mid-table next week. Morecambe are the visitors to Brunton Park next week. Carlisle will be hoping to continue their good run of form.

“We came here with a game plan and we stuck to it. We got that little bit of luck you need, at times, but we kept our belief and we got our rewards. The message at half time was to have even more belief. We didn’t retain possession of the ball anywhere near as well as we can in the first half. I see these lads in training and I know the ability they have. I’m sure people will have wondered if it was defensive, but I have a good understanding and belief in what is in the changing room,” said Curle.
