Swansea City face two more 'cup finals' as they hope to reach the play-offs for a second successive season. Roberto Martinez and his squad fly North to Carlisle tomorrow as they take another side hoping to reach the top 6.
The home side will want revenge over the Swans this time around as we embarrassed them at the Liberty Stadium by beating them 5-0.
Carlisle Manager, Neil McDonald: 'Swansea spanked us 5-0 at their place so we owe them for that,'
Carlisle midfielder Paul Thirlwell: 'The losers of the Swansea game will probably put that team out of the equation,'
'Oldham can beat anyone on their day, but they are in a bit of a bad patch.
'But the Swansea game is a massive one for both clubs and if we can play as we did in the first half against Bristol City, we'll stand a good chance.''
Danny Graham will be missing for the hosts tomorrow as he returns to Middlesborough after his loan spell.
Top scorer Karl Hawley is expected to return though after recovering from an ankle injury.
Hawley joined Carlisle ready for the 2004/05 season from Walsall. He made an instant impact and scored 13 goals that season.
He did even better the following year, scoring 22 goals in 46 league games and was voted League Two's player of the year.
This season he has scored 13 goals in 26 league starts.
Left back Marcos Painter will be missing as he loses his battle to return from a leg injury but he hopes to return for final game of the season at home to Blackpool.
There's good news for Martinez though as Tom Butler and Andy Robinson are both fit to travel.
The on-loan striker has scored 4 goals in 3 starts since joining from Hull and hopefully he can net get his first goals away from home tomorrow.
The Swans won thier last game away at Carlisle 2-1 in September 2003. Since then we've beaten them twice and lost one.
Earlier in the season we thrashed Carlisle 5-0 but you can bet it won't be that easy this time round as they sit one place below us in 8th.
It'll be a difficult match at Brunton Park tomorrow and we've been far from convincing away from home lately.
I think we'll get a point and hopefully see Oldham lost against Brighton.
