Boss Keith Curle has urged Carlisle United fans to flock to Brunton Park this Saturday.

United will be hoping to close in on another record when they play Hartlepool United this Saturday.

Having already secured the club's longest unbeaten start to a Football League season, Curle's men will equal the all-time club record of 13 games, which was set by Paul Simpson's Conference team in 2004, on Saturday if they avoid defeat.

The Blues are now up to third place in the league table and are one of just two Football League teams still unbeaten - the other being second-placed Bradford City in League One.

United have taken strong away followings to both Blackpool and Morecambe in recent weeks with the word on Carlisle's start to the campaign beginning to spread.

And Curle is targeting a good attendance for this weekend's game against Pool.

He said: "If we don't top 6,500 against Hartlepool in the next home game, I'll be bitterly disappointed.

"To get that support away from home [in the matches against Blackpool and Morecambe] is great.

"But all those supporters, we need to see you at Brunton Park on a regular basis.

"If you're a Carlisle fan, if you've any affiliation with the club and you know where it is, come down on Saturday.

"We need you. We're trying to build something, trying to create a wave. We want people to come and support us."

"From looking at the attendance figures for where we are in the division, there is more to come," Curle added.

"There's more supporters needed and more supporters out there.

"We need them to come and have a look and we'll show you what we are trying to do.

"It's totally different to the environment I walked into when I first came to the club.

"We are all pulling in the same direction and singing off the same hymn sheet."

He said: "People are starting to take notice and starting to enjoy being around the football club.

"And they are starting to enjoy the vibe that is being created."
