History of the Brentford v Carlisle United fixture

Brentford are ready to welcome Carlisle United to Griffin Park on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 4 of the 11 previous games, with the Bees winning just 2.

The previous match played between the two at Griffin Park was within the last three years, in January 2007, when they played out a goalless draw in a League One match.
