HASSELBAINK EXPECTED A DIFFICULT GAME AGAINST CARLISLE

15 April 2015

With games coming thick and fast towards the end of the Sky Bet League 2 season, the Brewers faced another tough test as Carlisle visited the Pirelli Stadium.

Some might not think it looking at the league table with Carlisle just six points from safety.

No game is an easy game in this league, so Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink keeps telling us anyway. When asked if Carlisle United will come fighting, the Brewers boss said “Yes they will be, of course.”
He went on to add “It will be different than the Wycombe game.

“I think they will set out different and it will be again a different game and a different challenge for us and different tactics.

“We have to equip ourselves.”

Last time out, Carlisle beat Dagenham & Redbridge by one goal to nil. Jason Kennedy's goal saw the Cumbrian side beat Dagenham as they ended a four-match losing run to move up to 20th place.

During his pre-match interview, Carlisle manager Keith Curle told the press that his player’s don’t have enough male genitalia to win games.

“They got a good win against Dagenham at home so yes Keith’s little talk helped them.

“Look, they will make a totally different game than previous games we have had here.

“It will be again a very difficult game you know because they are fighting for their lives.

Despite being 39 points behind the Brewers, Carlisle are going to come to the Pirelli and lay down everything they have got according to Hasselbaink.

“They are not going to come here and just give up, I’d love them to but they’re not.

“They are going to have a go, whatever that go is, however they set up so we have to make sure we are prepare right and do whatever we need to do.”
