The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Ross Law­son

CARLISLE United are fo­cused on look­ing up the ta­ble, ac­cord­ing to mid­fielder Jamie De­vitt, as they at­tempt to keep the pres­sure on Don­caster Rovers and Ply­mouth.

United suf­fered back-to­back de­feats at the start of 2017, hav­ing en­joyed an un­beaten first three months and just a sin­gle league de­feat be­tween Au­gust 6 and De­cem­ber 31.

While a num­ber of draws have al­lowed their ri­vals to keep pace, the 26year-old winger is still tar­get­ing the ti­tle.

“We’re not look­ing at who is be­hind us. We’re look­ing at who is in front,” he said. “We don’t want to fin­ish third, we want first.”

With a tough set of fix­tures on the hori­zon, De­vitt in­sists the mood is one of ex­cite­ment as they look to re­gain their mo­men­tum.

“If any­one had said we’d have a four-point gap to the play-off places, we would have bit­ten their hand off,” he added.

“There is a real be­lief around the dress­ing room that we can see this through. Ev­ery­body is in a con­fi­dent mood around the train­ing ground.”

POS­I­TIVE: Jamie De­vitt
