Football - Chantler doubt for Carlisle

Chris Chantler is a major doubt for Carlisle as they prepare to host Scunthorpe.

The left-back limped out of training this week with a recurrence of his ankle injury and now faces a race against time to prove his fitness to manager Greg Abbott.

Chantler is Abbott's only injury concern going into the game, with an otherwise fully-fit squad to choose from.

Matty Robson and Peter Murphy, back available following a calf injury, provide the Blues boss with options as possible replacements.

Central defender Mike Edwards has fully recovered from a hamstring injury and is hoping for inclusion but Alessio Bugno, currently training in his native Italy, will not feature.

Paul Thirlwell and Danny Cadamarteri, both plagued by recent calf injuries, are also in line for selection as the hosts look for their fourth consecutive win at Brunton Park.
