Carlisle ready and raring to go

Carlisle was left out of Owen Coyle's squad in February but insists he now has more hunger and desire for the rest of the season.

He told the club's official website: "As a professional, as hard as you try sometimes things just don't come off and I went through a period where I felt the harder I tried the more any mistake I made got punished.

"But that happens and it's part and parcel of your job and you need to make sure you are professional enough to be able to take it on the chin and go back to basics on the training pitch and fight hard to get your place back.

"[Being out the side] reignites your hunger, you're put in that position where you've got something to prove once again and it should never happen because we are professionals but sometimes you take it for granted that you might be in the starting XI.

"Mr Coyle has shown us this season that nobody can do that, nobody can rest on their laurels because he's not afraid to shuffle the pack and try and freshen things up a bit."
