Abbott aiming to make it three straight wins

Competition: npower League One

Venue: Glanford Park

Kick-off: Tuesday 12th February, 7:45pm

Carlisle United could make it three league wins in a row when they travel to Scunthorpe tonight.

The Blues have been in fine form recently, taking 13 points from a possible 15. That run has moved them nine points clear of the relegation zone, and makes an end of season surge towards the top-half of the table a real possibility.

Speaking ahead of this evening's match at Glanford Park, Carlisle boss Greg Abbott said:

"By the end of the week - if we have a successful week - we might be sitting in a real tidy position thinking, 'You never know'.

"But we need to put a 10 to 15 game run together now to get us where I think we need to be and where I want us to go, and we'll see what happens."
