All the historical match stats for the game at the Seward Stadium tomorrow afternoon as United look to get back to winning ways on the road
History of the Bournemouth v Carlisle United fixture
Carlisle pack their bags to visit the south coast tomorrow at a ground in which they have won three and lost seven of the ten games played there between the two sides over the years. Last season United going down 2-0 at Bournemouth in late September 2010, both Cherries goals, as 6,103 fans looked on, coming in the second half from Ryan Garry on 48 minutes then Michael Symes from the penalty spot after 64 minutes.
The last time before that the teams met in Dorset was in September 2007 when United won 3-1 in front of only 4,940 spectators in League One. Joe Garner putting the Blues 2-0 up at half-time before Jo Osei-Kuffour pulled a goal back for the Cherries on 54 minutes. Joe Anyinsah making sure that the Cumbrians took all three points though when he shot home midway through the second half.
The Blues also won the game the season before that as well, in November 2006, as Carlisle inflicted a narrow 1-0 defeat on the Cherries in a League One match. A fifth minute Karl Hawley penalty being enough for United to grab their first somewhat belated away win of the campaign in front of 5,682 spectators at the Fitness First Stadium.
The Cherries's biggest win over the Cumbrians at home came in their Bournemouth and Boscombe days back in the 1962-63 season when they won 5-1. The Blues were only 1-0 down at the interval but the Dorset side netted four times after the break, Carlisle's only goal, in front of 8,899 spectators, coming when Les Dagger knifed in to score.
Apart from the two victories this century, the only time United haven't lost at Bournemouth was two seasons later than their biggest defeat, in February 1965 when they hammered the Cherries 4-0 on the way to the Division Three title. The Cumbrians's goals that day coming courtesy of a Johnny Evans brace, Frank Large and a Bournemouth own goal as 6,841 fans at Dean Court looked on.
