Football - Novo set for Carlisle debut

Carlisle's latest signing Nacho Novo is hoping to be in contention for the league game at Crawley.

PA Sport Report

The former Rangers striker signed a short-term deal until the end of the season this week and is expected to be included in Graham Kavanagh's squad, subject to international clearance.

Paul Thirlwell (calf) came through unscathed when making his first appearance since New Year's Day in the midweek win against Bradford. The midfielder started as a third central defender in a 3-4-3 formation.

On-loan Wigan midfielder Danny Redmond is expected to resume after making his debut on Tuesday night, but Conor Townsend (foot) and fellow defender Chris Chantler (ankle) remain sidelined.
