George Waring expected to start in place of suspended Jamie Proctor for Carlisle

Carlisle will be without Jamie Proctor for the visit of Blackpool after the striker was sent off after scoring on his debut at Leyton Orient last week.

Fellow new boy George Waring is expected to take Proctor's place after coming off the bench at Brisbane Road, while James Bailey could also feature from the start.

Midfielder Mike Jones is in line to return to the starting line-up after marking his return from an ankle injury by playing the last 20 minutes of the game.

Shaun Brisley is closing in on his comeback from a knee injury but Jason Kennedy and Danny Grainger are both missing for Keith Curle's men.

Fit-again Blackpool striker Kyle Vassell is in line to start after returning as a substitute in the midweek stalemate at home to Crawley.

Vassell missed the previous three matches with a hamstring problem.

Midfielder Brad Potts' injury has kept him out of three of Blackpool's last four games - including against Crawley - and he was substituted at the start of the second half at home to Colchester last weekend.

Manager Gary Bowyer has acquired Raul Correia from Radcliffe Borough, but the striker has not even made the bench in two fixtures over the past week.
