Carlisle could be boosted by return of Michael Raynes

Carlisle boss Keith Curle has limited options as his side look to bounce back from successive defeats when Morecambe visit Brunton Park.

Curle is still without injured pair Danny Grainger (knee) and Mike Jones (ankle), leaving him with few opportunities of freshening his line-up.

One boost for Curle is the likely return of defender Michael Raynes, who missed last weekend's heavy 4-1 defeat at Colchester due to illness.

Alex McQueen and Shaun Miller are among those looking for starts after coming off the bench in the second half at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

Morecambe hope to have striker Rhys Turner and defender Aaron McGowan back for the contest.

The pair missed the 4-1 win over Notts County last Saturday due to hamstring problems.

Midfielder Andrew Fleming begins a three-match suspension after his sending off against the Magpies, while boss Jim Bentley completes a two-game touchline ban.

The Shrimps are currently under a transfer embargo and Bentley was only able to name a bench of four substitutes for the Notts County fixture.
