Carlisle's keeper Adam Collin fears that his back-to-back clean sheets will be ruined by Bradley Wright-Phillips tomorrow, although he also thinks that the Addicks are dangerous all over the pitch: http://www.newsandstar.co.uk/carlisle-united/latest/carlisle-utd-keeper-adam-collin-warns-over-charlton-striker-wright-phillips-1.889616?referrerPath=home
This hardly sounds like a confident stance with Carlisle forecasting another away win earlier in the week. However, it is evident that they have suffered from a lot of defensive chopping and changing. It also seems to have dawned that Charlton are not Yeovil.
Things weren't going too well for Carlisle earlier in the season and there was pressure on manager Greg Abbott from the fans in which one of the directors got involved on Twitter.

It's pretty clichéd stuff, although it's hard to say anything substantive in these circumstances without giving away your game plan. In essence it is a rally the troops call but with the beginnings of a get out narrative in case there is a defeat.
Confidence is fragile among the Addickted at the moment. We might take some comfort from the fact that the New York Addick, who writes an excellent blog but has turned into something of a nabob of negativity will not be at the match as he always seem to induce poor performances.
I think that we can win this match, but not comfortably and I am going for 2-1.
