Injury doubts remain over Carlisle United pair
Last updated at 08:35, Friday, 08 February 2013
Chris Chantler and Danny Cadamarteri are manager Greg Abbott’s main injury concerns for Carlisle United ahead of tomorrow’s Stevenage clash.
Both have been battling ankle injuries having missed the Blues latest game at Tranmere last weekend.
Striker Cadamarteri is understood to be back in training and could return to the squad tomorrow. Chantler’s comeback, meanwhile, remains unclear with Abbott having said he is unwilling to rush the defender back and risk making his injury worse. If Chantler again misses out then Matty Robson will continue at left-back, allowing Andy Welsh to make his third consecutive start.
Last week’s matchwinner Rory Loy, whose goal at Prenton Park was his first since December 2011, is again tipped to partner Lee Miller in attack.
Both Blues forwards will tomorrow come face to face with the players who inflicted their long-term injuries. Stevenage right-back David Gray was playing for Preston when his tackle on Boxing Day 2011 caused Loy’s broken leg. And midfielder Greg Tansey was responsible for the foul which put Miller onto the sidelines for more than four months with an ankle injury. Former United loan flop Miguel Comminges is also set to feature for the 12th-placed Hertfordshire side.
United have cut ticket prices for students for the home clash with Walsall on Tuesday, February 26.
Ticket prices for college students have been cut to £6, and £6.50 for university students, in the Reays Community Stand. Students can also receive their first drink at half-price if they show their ticket to bar staff between 6.30pm and 7.30pm.
Students can buy their tickets for the Walsall game until 5pm on February 25, either from Carlisle College or from the Student Union office on Fusehill Street.
United’s youth team host Shrewsbury tomorrow in their rearranged Youth Alliance Cup quarter-final (Creighton Rugby Club, 12pm).
