We can end Carlisle Utd's unbeaten Brunton Park run - Charlton boss

Promotion-chasing Charlton boss Chris Powell reckons the Addicks can smash Carlisle United’s long unbeaten run at Brunton Park and take a huge step towards the title.

League One’s leaders are aiming for a hat-trick of victories against the Blues this season when they head for Cumbria on Saturday.

The Addicks, who beat Greg Abbott’s side 4-0 and 2-0 at The Valley in league and cup, could even clinch promotion if results go their way this weekend.

Manager Powell admits it will be a challenge to upset the Cumbrians on their formidable home ground but is backing his side, who have won their last three games.

“It was a real welcome six points for us over the last three days and we go to Carlisle now, which is a really tough game,” Powell said.

“We have beaten them twice already this season and I’ll be looking for us to get a third one.”

Charlton will be promoted this weekend if they beat the Blues and third-placed Sheffield Wednesday fail to win at Colchester.

“If we keep our heads, keep our composure and keep doing what we are doing then we will get there,” Powell added.
