Match Preview

Cumbrians cautious over Livesey Carlisle defender Danny Livesey is in a race to be fit to face Rochdale. Centre-half Livesey missed the weekend defeat at Notts County with bruised ribs, so Lubo Michalik was recalled to the starting line-up alongside Peter Murphy. Slovakia international Michalik will continue if Livesey fails to make it. Manager Greg Abbott will still be without defender Matty Robson, who is set to see a specialist this week regarding a troublesome back problem that has kept him out for almost two months. Chris Chantler filled in at left-back on Saturday following the return of Ben Parker to Leeds and is likely to continue. Abbott has no new injury or suspension worries as his side bid to close the three-point gap between themselves and the top six. Rochdale defender Kevin Amankwaah is expected to remain on the sidelines. Amankwaah has formed an impressive centre-back partnership with Kevin Long following boss John Coleman's arrival from Accrington, but has missed Dale's past two games with a groin problem. Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro returned from the bench against Sheffield Wednesday following a period out with a hamstring injury. Akpa Akpro came on for Nicky Adams with 52 minutes gone in Saturday's goalless draw and will be pushing for a start at Brunton Park. Rochdale are without a goal in their last three matches and have not won away from home since November, when they overcame Preston 1-0 at Deepdale in what proved to be Steve Eyre's final victory as manager.

Match Report

Zoko keeps Cumbrians in play-off hunt Carlisle extended their unbeaten home run to 13 games as they beat struggling Rochdale 2-1 with all the goals coming in a lively second half at Brunton Park. Dale's Jason Kennedy cancelled out Jon Paul McGovern's opener, but Francois Zoko, with his 12th goal of the season, clinched the win for Carlisle. Rochdale, without a goal in their previous three games, could easily have grabbed the lead twice inside the opening five minutes as Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro had a close-range shot deflected before Michael Symes forced goalkeeper Adam Collin to parry his well-placed low drive. Carlisle finally began to assert themselves in the second half and after Lee Miller had seen a header chalked off for a marginal offside, McGovern gave the home side the lead in the 58th minute. The tricky Zoko was the architect with a mazy run into the box and Miller provided the lay-off, which enabled McGovern to stroke the ball low past goalkeeper Dave Lucas from 10 yards. Dale drew level against the run of play in the 74th minute when substitute Andrew Tutte's cross was met by Kennedy's glancing header, but Carlisle regained the lead within two minutes when Zoko rammed a low left-footed shot past Lucas.
