Police ask fans to 'respect all properties' as they move around Carlisle

Cumbria Police have given advice to those planning on attending today's Carlisle v Everton FA Cup tie at Brunton Park.

They have suggested that road users avoid using junction 43 and Warwick Road this afternoon as it is likely to be congested.

Police have also reminded fans that the area surrounding Brunton Park was badly flooded in December, and that "and as work continues to rebuild the affected homes and businesses, it is vitally important that visitors respect all properties as they move to and from the ground."

Keith Curle: 'we're ready to win'

Players and fans at Carlisle United are gearing up for a huge day in the club's history: tomorrow's fourth round FA Cup tie against Everton.

Brunton Park will host a sell-out crowd of seventeen thousand. The tie is worth an estimated quarter of a million pounds to United.

The Blues' manager, Keith Curle, says his players will go out aiming to win, though he accepts they will need fortune on their side.

Remember the Carlisle United team of 1995/96?

They made the club's first ever appearance at the old Wembley Stadium, dressed in their infamous 'deckchair' away strip.

Derek Mountfield played for Everton, but in 1994 he moved to Carlisle United, and helped the Blues win promotion to Division Two.

Watch him, and other players including Rory Delap, introducing themselves to the camera:

Carlisle United will be hoping for a performance reminiscent of the boys of 95/96, when they take on Everton at Brunton Park this weekend.
