Abbott wins Carlisle support

25 March 2009 12:13
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."
