Injuries hamper Cumbrians' cup hopes
Carlisle have a number of injury concerns as they prepare to welcome Accrington to Brunton Park in the first round of the Capital One Cup.
Striker Paddy Madden will almost certainly sit out the tie with torn ankle ligaments while young midfielder Jack Lynch is out with a foot problem. New signing Danny Cadamarteri has had a hamstring injury but may feature. Fellow forward Rory Loy has been seeing a podiatrist because of leg injuries which have affected his movement and is a doubt. Winger Jon-Paul McGovern had a double hernia problem three weeks ago but appeared in the friendly against Morecambe and may play a part against Stanley. Italian defender Alessio Bugno could make his competitive debut for the Cumbrians, after joining from Monza, along with former Notts County defender Mike Edwards.
