Carlisle United have suffered a lot in the left back position recently due to several injuries to key players. However, it looks like they will be certainly having a lot of options in this position due to the return of several players back from injury. This has forced caretaker manager Graham Kavanagh into taking a decision over the players after the club. Reece James and Conor Townsend have impressed a lot during the loan spell, and Kavanagh has spoken about the possibility of extending the loan deals.

He has also said that Chris Chantler will be back in full training very soon after recovering sufficiently from his ankle injury. Even though there is a lot of uncertainty around the position of Kavanagh, he is prepared to talk for the benefit of the club to these players. Kavanagh was recently appointed as the caretaker manager after the sacking of Greg Abbott. He has managed to overturn the poor form of the club to get two consecutive victories in the league. Kavanagh has said that even though he will be talking to the players about the loan spell, he has admitted that keeping them at the club is largely the decision of managing director John Dixon.

Reece James will be at the club until 1 January. Townsend is on loan from Hull city.

“That is something I’m going to look at. I haven’t spoken to either player yet but I also have to speak to [managing director] John Nixon about it. I would love to keep Reece. He’s a great kid and a good footballer. He’s been unfortunate with injuries but to his credit he has come back and fitted straight back in. Troy is an absolute must to stay. He is an absolute colossus, a big powerful boy,” said the manager.
