Carlisle vs Wigan Latest News, Team Information, and Lineups

Carlisle

The home team started their preseason in a great run of form with four straight victories. However, as their training period progressed the form went downhill. They drew their opening game of the season and then lost to Harrogate in the EFL Cup which they followed with another league defeat.

Expected lineup: Holy, Lavelle, Huntington, Mellish, Back, McCalmont, Guy, Charters, Armer, Edmondson, Gibson.

Wigan

They are the more experienced team, an FA Cup winner not long ago even though those times seem like too far away. The positive news that the fans were looking for arrived two months ago when the club finally got a new owner. Mike Danson bought the team and settled all the debts, so the team can continue growing.

Expected lineup: Tickle, Pearce, Morrison, Hughes, Clare, S. Smith, Aasgaard, M. Smith, Lang, Humphrys, Wyke.

Player to Watch: Charlie Wyke

The 30-year-old striker joined Wigan two years ago and managed to put in some good performances while playing in 37 games and scoring nine times while also delivering four assists. One of his former teams was Carlisle United and it will be curious how he responds against a squad for which he scored 38 goals in 89 appearances.

His best days were played at Sunderland when he accumulated 114 matches played while scoring 42 goals with eleven assists on the record as well. Earlier than that, he played for Bradford City and Hartlepool United which shows how much experience he has at the lower league level in England.
