Notts County goalkeeper Adam Collin has fond memories of his time at Carlisle but will be putting them to the back of his mind this afternoon.
The 32-year-old spent four happy years at Brunton Park and is looking forward to making only his second return as an opposition player.
He said: "I loved it at Carlisle - it was my first step into the Football League after playing semi-pro at Workington. We had two Wembley finals and were playing in a ridiculously strong League One with the likes of Bournemouth, Norwich, Sheffield Wednesday, Brighton and Southampton.
"It was a great place to play and we were always in and around the top 10 - I thoroughly enjoyed my time there.
"It's going to be a tough game. They are a good side - they've been up there all season. They've had a bad run - a little blip - then they picked three points up last weekend.
"They'll be hoping to cement their play-off place but we want to go up there and spoil the party for them by taking three points."
Collin has kept two clean sheets in his last three matches and is enjoying the positive atmosphere at the club following a difficult few months.
He said: "It was tough - our run of form was terrible. When you're conceding a lot of goals it points to the goalkeeper and back four but I'm experienced - I've been around a long time now - so you just take it, get on with it and believe in your own ability.
"The whole place has got a buzz now. Everyone has bought into what the new owner and manager are trying to achieve and we've turned it round nicely.
"I think it could be really good next year."
