Winger Matty Robson is confident Carlisle are ready for their big test at Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.
Robson, who was outstanding for Greg Abbott's side last season after arriving from Hartlepool, has been left kicking his heels on the substitutes' bench this time around, but has seen enough to predict a successful campaign for United.
Robson said: "We've got a good squad of lads here and confidence is high. I'm not going to be a bad apple in among all that. Spirits are high and we go into every game determined to win it.
"They don't come much bigger than Sheffield Wednesday, but we're going into it on a high.
"There are some massive teams in this division, but I think we'll hold our own.
"We know what we have in this group and if we can stay together and relatively injury free we'll be hard to deal with."
