Carlisle United are the guests at the Globe Arena this Saturday afternoon as Derek Adams takes charge of his first home league game as Shrimps' Manager.
Chris Beech's side travel to the Globe off the back of a 2-2 draw away at Forest Green Rovers in the FA Cup second round.
The SkyBet League Two fixture will also see Beech's first league game in charge of Carlisle United after previous manager, Steven Pressley, leave his position after the Shrimps' 3-1 victory in the Leasing.com Trophy over the Cumbrians.
Derek Adams says his side will have to be prepared for a very different Carlisle when the Blues visit the Globe Arena on Saturday.
Derek said: “Carlisle have changed the philosophy and their formation since they were last here.
“They got a good draw at Forest Green Rovers in the cup last week playing that way which was a good result so I’m sure they will be looking to do the same again on Saturday.
“It will be nice for us to have a home league again as it has been quite some time since we had one when we beat Orient and we will have to look to take confidence from that game and the win over Carlisle in the cup.
“The week off last week wasn’t ideal but it has given me time to look at my players more and spend more time with them on the training ground.
“They have worked hard and we will be ready for the game.
“We are bottom of the league for a reason and that has to be changed.
“The season so far hasn’t been good enough and we have to move up the table, hopefully starting with a good result on Saturday.’’
