Carlisle United are preparing to face Stevenage at the weekend, on the verge of setting an all-time club record for the longest unbeaten start to the season.

The Blues are third in League Two, having played thirteen games without a loss in the campaign so far.

Club captain, Danny Grainger, says the squad's focus remains on promotion:

First and foremost, we need to go down there and get the three points, make sure we are in the automatic places come five o'clock on Saturday. That's our first goal.

Obviously it is nice to pass records as we are going. The lads are very proud of what we are achieving at the moment. But again, we need to get promoted. That is the big thing this season."
