CUFC: Deal or no deal?

Today was meant to be deadline day for three of Carlisle United's young players to agree new deals with the club.

But an extension has been agreed as negotiations continue.

Brad Potts has turned down United's initial offer and the club have refused a bid for Kyle Dempsey. But manager Keith Curle says both players and striker Mark Beck could still benefit by extending their stays at Brunton Park rather than leaving for short term salary boosts.

New manager steps up to CUFC 'challenge'

Carlisle United have officially unveiled their new manager this morning.

Former Manchester City midfielder Keith Curle is the new boss at Brunton Park. Curle, who's previously managed Chester City, Torquay and Notts County admits this is his biggest challenge in management so far, but believes he can turn things around.

Robson's early strike wins the game

The game was only a minute old when Matty Robson latched on to a cross from JP McGovern to give Carlisle the lead over a Coventry side looking to extend a record of six away wins in a row.

Ninety five minutes of football later it was still the only thing separating the sides.

t was a huge improvement on the Blues last outing when they were beaten 4-0 by Swindon.

Liam Noble and Lee Miller both spurned chances to extend United's lead, while two shocking misses by Coventry's Leon Clarke will have been a bitter pill for away fans to swallow.

Carlisle are now 17th in League One, nineteen points above the relegation zone.
