Newport County AFC will look to get back to winning ways after last weekend’s draw against Morecambe when the team travel to Carlisle United on Saturday.
The Exiles currently sit fourth in the Sky Bet League Two table and a win could see them jump to as high as second.
County fans may find a winter trip to Cumbria a bit of a novelty as Carlisle has been the final away game of the season for the past two years. However, this autumn fixture holds just as much importance with the Exiles hoping to remain in the promotion hunt.
Tickets are available on match day at the Away Ticket Office located at the back of the Pioneer Foods Stand which is next to the visitor’s turnstiles. There will be a £3 increase for all on-the-day match tickets (excluding juniors, U11s and U7s).
Tickets for this fixture can be purchased from the Kingsway Club Shop until 3pm on Friday 2nd November.
