Carlisle manager Greg Abbott will hand a late fitness test to striker Francois Zoko ahead of the home clash with Notts County.
Zoko is struggling with a groin injury and missed the midweek penalty shoot-out win against Port Vale in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy on Tuesday.
Craig Curran started alongside Gary Madine against Port Vale, while veteran Jason Price was a second-half substitute and is also in contention.
Lubo Michalik has returned to Leeds for treatment on a hamstring strain so Peter Murphy will continue in central defence, while skipper Paul Thirlwell and fellow midfielder Marc Bridge-Wilkinson are missing again due to respective knee injuries.
Long-term casualty Danny Livesey (groin) is edging closer to a return to first-team action, but will not be included.
