Grimsby vs Carlisle preview
Last Updated: 21/04/19 1:14pm
Grimsby are without the suspended Danny Collins for their League Two clash with Carlisle.
Collins was sent off in the defeat to Colchester on Friday - his second dismissal of the season - and will serve a two-match ban. Boss Michael Jolley has hinted at shuffling his pack as he looks to assess his squad ahead of the summer transfer window.
Rumarn Burrell, 18, will be looking for another run out after making his second senior appearance as a late substitute at Colchester.
Carlisle are waiting for news on midfielder Jamie Devitt as they continue their pursuit of a play-off place. Devitt limped off with a hamstring injury during Friday's 1-0 win over leaders Lincoln.
Carlisle manager Steven Pressley will also check on Kelvin Etuhu, who was icing his ankle after the Lincoln game, while Mark Cullen and Danny Grainger are closing in on their returns from injury. The victory over Lincoln, coupled with a defeat for Exeter, has left the Cumbrians a point off a place in the top seven.
Grimsby are looking to complete the league double over Carlisle for the first time since the 1997-98 third tier campaign, a season which saw Grimsby gain promotion and Carlisle suffer relegation.
Carlisle are unbeaten in their last three trips to Grimsby in League Two (W2 D1), last tasting defeat at Blundell Park back in December 1997.
After a run of three successive home league wins, Grimsby are winless in their last four at Blundell Park (D2 L2), failing to score each time.
Carlisle haven't scored more than once in any of their last eight away league games (four goals in total) and are winless in their last six on the road (D2 L4).
Carlisle haven't won an away league game on Easter Monday since 1994 (3-2 at Crewe), drawing two and losing 11 such games since.
