Carlisle host Burton on the back of a defeat away at Plymouth on saturday, ending their three game winning streak. Burton arrive at Brunton Park after getting beat 2-0 by Morecambe at home on saturday, there for meaning they have lost two and won two of their last four games.

Carlisle are still without Mark Gillespie (groin) and Billy Paynter (some sort of muscle injury!) whilst David Amoo is back in full training and contention, as well as Danny Grainger after suspension. Courtney Meppen-Walter has also returned to training this week as well. Steven Rigg (Adductor Tear) and Danny Kearns (Thigh Strain) will be assessed before kick off. John Mousinho and Lucas Akins (both calf) face late fitness checks for Burton after missing their game on saturday, as well as Jimmy Phillips (knee) and Callum McFadzean (foot) as they are both long-term absentee's.

Curle may have a few difficult decisions to make to his team due to players like David Amoo and Danny Grainger returning from injury and suspension. Curle must also decide whether Troy Archibald-Henville can manage to play two games in the space of four days due to his dodgy knee's. Burton may stick with 4-5-1 or may revert back to a 4-4-2 formation, recalling Stuart Beavon to the attack.

I (again) fancy Carlisle to win this. 2-1

Toughg game to call. I think Rowett may end up being the next Birmingham manager. With Burton struggling form wise at the moment, Carlisle in very good form and under the new manager syndrome and a long cold journey on a rough night weatherwise. Feels like a home win to me, by the odd goal. You never know what your going to get from Burton though.
