Football - Townsend banned for Cumbrians

Carlisle will be without suspended defender Conor Townsend for the home game against Crewe.

PA Sport Report

Townsend, on loan from Hull, was sent off for two yellow card offences in the weekend draw at Rotherham and sits out a one-game ban, but he will be back for the final game of his loan spell at Swindon on Saturday.

Prince Buaben has missed the last two games due to illness but could return to contention, while fellow midfielder Paul Thirlwell played the full 90 minutes at Rotherham despite carrying a knock.

Goalkeeper Ben Amos, on loan from Manchester United, is expected to retain his place with Greg Fleming on the substitutes' bench.
