Same again for Abbott

Carlisle manager Greg Abbott is expected to choose from an unchanged squad for his side`s Johnstone's Paint Trophy clash with Port Vale.Abbott, who has no new injury or suspension problems, should stick with Peter Murphy at centre-half in place of on-loan Lubo Michalik, who has returned to Leeds due to a hamstring strain.Assistant manager Graham Kavanagh will undergo exploratory knee surgery at the end of this week, while the Cumbrians will be without skipper Paul Thirlwell and fellow midfielder Marc Bridge-Wilkinson again due to respective knee injuries.Long-term casualty Danny Livesey (groin) remains sidelined, while Oliver Norwood and Craig Curran are pressing for recalls to the starting line-up after stepping off the bench at half-time during Saturday's home defeat to Peterborough.
