Redmond in line for start

Carlisle boss Graham Kavanagh could hand a first start to Daniel Redmond when his side welcome Bradford to Brunton Park.

The on-loan Wigan midfielder made his bow from the bench in Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Gillingham and is in line to make his full debut.

Fellow midfielder Paul Thirlwell could be involved for the first time since New Year's Day following his recovery from a calf injury.

Conor Townsend is still struggling with a foot problem, while fellow defender Chris Chantler (ankle) remains sidelined.

Bradford boss Phil Parkinson has midfielder Nathan Doyle available for the trip.

Doyle was suspended for the 3-3 draw with Crewe at the weekend after picking up two yellow cards against Wolves but he now returns to contention.

Parkinson will check on Rory McArdle, who missed out against the Alex after injuring his eye in training on Friday.

Raffaele De Vita was named on the bench on Saturday following his recovery from a thigh injury. He could make his first-team return against the Cumbrians.
