Football - Cumbrians without O'Hanlon again

Carlisle must look to tighten up the Sky Bet Football League's most leaky defence at Brentford without injured centre-half Sean O'Hanlon again.

PA Sport Report

The Cumbrians have conceded 22 goals in six matches this season, but under-fire manager Greg Abbott has few options following the 5-2 Capital One Cup defeat to Leicester in midweek.

O'Hanlon is still struggling with the groin injury he sustained in the warm-up ahead of last Friday's draw at Colchester and midfielder Paul Thirlwell stepped in alongside Danny Livesey at the heart of defence.

Abbott, who has no new injury or suspension problems, could be tempted to recall either Mike Edwards or Kevin Feely to his back line as his side chase their first league win of the season.
