Preston North End will play their second game in three days on Tuesday evening in the JPT...
It will be a quick turnaround for Preston North End as the squad prepare for their first round Johnstone’s Paint Trophy clash against Carlisle United; 48 hours after their 4-1 win over Swindon Town.
The Lilywhites have enjoyed a successful week, with two 4-1 victories at Deepdale alongside the deadline day signing of striker Stuart Beavon.
Heading north to Cumbria, North End last season reached the regional semi-finals of the competition, only to lose to eventual champions Chesterfield on penalties, and boss Graham Westley will want to maintain the Club’s winning run against United.
Long term absentees Lee Holmes and Lee Trundle will miss out.
If you wish to purchase on the day of the game, prices are as follows:
Carlisle United are also offering family package prices which apply for both pre-match sales and on the day.
Family Package 1 + 1 ** £19

The Blues head into the game having had a mixed start to the season, having picked up four points from their first four league matches.
However, after last Tuesday’s Capital One Cup triumph over Ipswich Town, they face the prospect of a third round clash at home against Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspurs.
The last time North End travelled up north to Brunton Park was at the back end of last season, with the sides playing out a 0-0 draw.
Preston will travel to Carlisle United later this season in League One, with the fixture scheduled for Saturday 13th April 2013.
The Carlisle United squad is as follows:
Travel north on the M6 heading towards Lancaster. Continue north until you reach junction 43, take the A69 exit to Carlisle/Hexham/Newcastle. At the roundabout, take the first exit onto Warwick Road/A69 heading towards Carlisle. You will then take your next right and you will arrive at the stadium.
Distance from Deepdale - 98 miles (1hrs 32 min)
Brunton Park is around one mile from Carlisle station.
