Carlisle United Managing Director John Nixon says the club remains ambitious despite a poor start to the season.

United are still hovering above the relegation zone but Nixon says the play-offs are still a possibility: "It's a big ask at this stage of the season but it's early days and we think we've still got a chance."

Nixon denied that hiring Graham Kavanagh was a mistake and said he believes the former Carlisle manager will be successful in the future.
