Abbott wins Carlisle support

25 Mar 2009 - 12:13:29

Carlisle United chief executive David Allen has backed under-fire manager Greg Abbott to keep the club in League One.

The Cumbrians slipped to 19th place in the table after losing 2-1 at home to fellow strugglers Hereford United on Tuesday.

Former caretaker Abbott was handed an 18-month contract following John Ward's sacking in October 2008.

"I know things aren't perfect at all and there's a lot to do," Allen told BBC Radio Cumbria.

"We've just all got to get behind Greg. We're in a relegation battle and our job is to make sure we don't go down.

"I know there's been a little bit of criticism for ourselves and for Greg but there's no complacency at all. We know we're in a battle and we'll be battling."
