Carlisle have been hit by the news that Marc Bridge-Wilkinson is facing around three weeks on the sidelines with a knee injury.

The former Derby midfielder sustained a sprained ligament in training on Monday and will spend yet more time out of action.

Bridge-Wilkinson has endured a frustrating season due to toe and back injuries, but was pushing for a recall to the starting line-up before his latest setback.

He came off the bench in the recent Football League Trophy victory over Chesterfield but will not be available to boss Greg Abbott until December.
