Cumbrians boss to ring the changes
Abbott shuffled the pack for his side's Johnstone's Paint Trophy clash with Morecambe in midweek, giving a number of fringe players a chance to impress. The United boss must decide whether to start with Lenny Pidgeley after he was charged with drink-driving last weekend, with Adam Collin the alternative option after his penalty shoot-out heroics against the Shrimps. Scott Dobie, Danny Livesey, Joe Anyinsah and Ian Harte were all rested against the Shrimps, but will return to face John Barnes' side. Midfielder Marc Bridge-Wilkinson is in contention after recovering from a back injury and Abbott will monitor the fitness of on-loan midfielder Tom Taiwo (Achilles). Richard Keogh (ankle) is not expected to return to training for at least another four weeks.
