Carlisle to start at Portman Road

13 August 2010 09:06
Defender Michael Duff is nursing a calf injury so Clarke Carlisle is set to deputise from the start for Burnley at Ipswich on Saturday.

Chelsea midfielder Jack Cork is also set to make the side for the Championship encounter at Portman Road after joining on a season-long loan.

Cork, 21, enjoyed a successful four-month loan spell at Turf Moor last season and scored his first Premier League goal in the Clarets' win against Tottenham on the final day of the campaign.

The England under-21 international has had previous loan spells with Coventry, Scunthorpe, Southampton and Bournemouth, clocking up over 100 league appearances.

His arrival is a welcome boost to boss Brian Laws after midfielder Chris McCann was this week ruled out of action for at least six months with a knee injury.
