We've Met Before | Carlisle United (H)

26 January 2023

We’ve gone head-to-head with Carlisle United 109 times previously, winning 45 of those meetings, drawing 23 times and losing 41 games.

Earlier in the season, when Dale visited Brunton Park, the sides drew 3-3, in what was Scott Quigley’s debut. The forward, who’s on loan from Stockport County, scored twice and assisted another in his first appearance in a Dale shirt.

Carlisle’s last win at Rochdale came in 2011 when they won 3-2 towards the end of the 2010/11 season in League One. Since then, Dale have drawn once and won twice at the Crown Oil Arena against the Cumbrians

We’ve taken a look at some of those games…


Tuesday 29th March 2022 – Dale 2-0 Carlisle United

Last season’s meeting came at a time when Dale were seven games without a win, so three points were absolutely vital.

Dale were given a golden chance to take the lead within the first 10 minutes when they were awarded a penalty after Corey Whelan fouled Stephen Dooley. Up stepped Liam Kelly, who fired the ball low into the left-hand corner, beating Mark Howard.

It was 10 minutes before full-time when Dale added a second. Corey O’Keeffe played in Conor Grant with a neat pass, who then fired the ball through Howard’s arms and into the roof of the net.

Tuesday 27th August 2019 – Dale 2-1 Carlisle United

This victory against The U's meant that Dale reached the third round of the Carabao Cup in 2019. It was a win that put us through to face Manchester United at Old Trafford, in a memorable tie. 

Aaron Morley opened the scoring against Carlisle, finding space 25-yards from goal and curling a shot off the woodwork and into the net.

Matty Done added a second to effectively put the tie to bed, racing through unmarked towards the Carlisle net, drawing Adam Collin off his line before applying the finish.

Saturday 20th March 2004 - Dale 2-0 Carlisle United

Dale came into this fixture off the back of six games without a win.

The visitors were down to ten men shortly after the half hour mark, when Matt Glennon was given a straight red card for bringing down Grant Holt in the area.

Gary Jones stepped up and converted the penalty, before Holt added a second after the break to secure the three points.
