Kavanagh praises "huge response"

Carlisle United caretaker-manager Graham Kavanagh has praised the "huge response" he's seen since taking charge at Brunton Park.

Goals from Matty Robson and David Amoo saw the Blues come from 2-1 behind to beat Notts County 2-1 at Brunton Park on Saturday. The result was the club's third League One victory in a row.

Speaking after the match, the Irishman said: "There's a been a huge and massive response from the players, the staff and to honest he fans as well. The fans have been different class in the two home games. Got right behind us."

Kavanagh hinted that the result increases his chances of landing the role full-time. He added: "I think it puts a little bit of pressure on the directors and the chairman, but it's a good headache I'm sure they have."
