Preview: Barrow v Carlisle United

17 October 2022

Here's all the details you need ahead of Tuesday night's Papa John's Trophy clash against Carlisle United.

Barrow v Carlisle United
Tuesday 18th October, kick-off 7pm
SO Legal Stadium
Papa John’s Trophy Group Stage

Barrow's Cumbrian rivals come into the fixture off the back of a 3-0 home victory over Doncaster Rovers at the weekend. The Blues come into the game on good form, unbeaten in their last 5, victorious in 3. Their last defeat came in this competition; a 2-1 defeat at Brunton Park against Man Utd U21. 

A look back at last season's Papa Johns Trophy saw Carlisle reach Round Three where they were defeated by Harrogate Town 1-0. The North Cumbrians found themselves finish top on 8pts, with an unbeaten Group Stage and knocking out Lincoln City with a penalty win in Round Two. 

Carlisle United, along with Barrow, come into the game with a chance of still progressing, both having picked up the bonus points in draws against Fleetwood Town. 

Head To Head
A total of 64 games have been played out between the two rivals dating back to 1928. Carlisle have been on the victorious end of 25 of these fixtures in comparison to The Bluebirds' 21. A 9-goal thriller in 1931 saw Barrow defeat The Blues 7-2 at Holker Street. 

Last season, Carlisle United walked away with all 3 points in Sky Bet League Two. A 2-1 victory that day in March saw Ollie Banks 78th minute strike not enough to force a comeback. 

The man in the middle will be Sebastian Stockbridge, and he will be partnered by Johnathon Bickerdike and Billy Smallwood. Scott Jackson is the assigned Fourth Official for the Cumbrian Derby. 

It won’t be Stockbridge’s debut officiating at SO Legal Stadium; he was in control when Barrow humbled Forest Green Rovers 4-0 in April. 3,098 fans that day saw Barrow ignite their Survival bid, fan with John Rooney providing a goal and two assists. 

Sebastian’s latest game saw him referee a draw between Peterborough United and Burton Albion in Sky Bet League One on 8th October, where a goal for either side at the Weston Holmes Stadium left both walking away sharing the points.

Ticket prices for the game have been slashed to just £10 for adults and £5 for everyone else.
