Carlisle will be hosting Portsmouth in League 2 on Saturday in a game that had been in doubt earlier this week.

Stadium manager Dave Mitchell shares his views on this, he told Official Website.

‘We had a lot of heavy rain last Wednesday so that started to fill everything up last week.

‘The forecasts were for more rain last weekend, and on Sunday it was pretty apparent we were going to have a problem on Monday morning.

‘We’ve been in this situation before. If it was the first time it had happened we possibly would have panicked, but we know the system gets overwhelmed. We knew we would be fine if our friends with the big pumps were available.’
