Football - Fleming poised to seize chance

Carlisle have concerns over the fitness of goalkeeper Mark Gillespie ahead of their Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie with Fleetwood.

PA Sport Report

The Blues keeper played on through the pain of a muscle injury in the back of his knee in Saturday's 0-0 draw at Boreham Wood - a problem which looks set to sideline him for the midweek cup tie and hand a first-team chance to Greg Fleming.

Carlisle could also be without right-back Pascal Chimbonda, who is struggling with a groin injury, while striker Lee Miller is still suspended.

Recent loan signing Max Ehmer should be back in contention after he was not granted permission to play in the FA Cup by parent club QPR.
