Ibehre sent off inside opening minute during Carlisle draw

Carlisle United managed a 1-1 draw away to Accrington Stanley, despite having striker Jabo Ibehre sent off inside the opening minute for catching Matty Pearson with a high foot.

The visitors went in front through Hallam Hope's goal before Accrington were then reduced to 10 men after 54 minutes, when Adam Buxton was dismissed for a second yellow card offence.

Four minutes later Stanley were level when Sean McConville played a ball in from the left for substitute Terry Gornell to head home.

Hope for Kearns but no to Marrow

Keith Curle spoke to the press this afternoon answering a wide range of questions on how the club is progressing during the transfer window.

The manager also gave an insight into two players whose future at the club has been questioned. Alex Marrow and Danny Kearns have both spent time away from Brunton Park in recent weeks, but it seems their prospects of returning into the starting eleven under Keith Curle are different.

First he addressed questions over midfielder Danny Kearns who has recently returned to Cumbria after time back home in Ireland to refocus.

But while the door appears to remain open for Kearns to return, it looks increasingly likely that Alex Marrow, one of Graham Kavanagh's big summer signings could soon be on his way out of the club.
