Kavanagh remains optimistic about league

Carlisle United head to Cambridge tomorrow for their fifth game of the season, still chasing their first win, and with Graham Kavanagh admitting that his side are already stretched by a growing injury list.

Injuries were a key factor in last season's relegation from League One with the Blues going through fifty players as a string of loan signings were needed to cover for long term absences.

This year it is a case of a new squad, a new approach, but the same old problems.

Hundreds get the blues at Carlisle United's first match of season

Hundreds of Carlisle United supporters wore free t-shirts at the first home match of the season. The club issued more than 3,500 blue t-shirts to fans after it announced that the new home kit wouldn't be available in time for the start of the season.

Production problems with the club's new supplier - Sondico Professional Ltd - meant that the new season's kit isn't available till the end of this week. Many of the fans wore the free blue T-shirts during the game against Luton at Brunton Park yesterday.

The new kit's design is based on the 1974/75 season when Carlisle played in the old division one.

Carlisle United boss' disappointment at loss

The manager of Carlisle United says he's surprised that his team got beaten on the first game of the season. Graham Kavanagh's side lost 1-0 at home to newly promoted side Luton Town.

The first half was pretty negative from the players. I can't tell you why. The build up through the week was very good. We worked yesterday on tactics. I knew it was going to be a difficult start. But we didn't come to terms with the way they played and I didn't think we were brave enough first half. Second half was miles better. We changed the system and the shape. We just couldn't take that chance when it came.

– Graham Kavanagh, manager of Carlisle United
