Thirwell doubtful for Cumbrians
The 30-year-old midfielder limped out of the disappointing 2-1 defeat to Hereford on Tuesday after just 27 minutes and boss Greg Abbott fears Thirlwell has flared up an injury first sustained in December. "Thirls is key to what we do at the club so there's no hiding from the fact that it was a blow to lose him so early in the game," Abbott told his club's official website. "It looks like it is his calf injury again and, although it is far too early to speculate, it is a worry for us that it has cropped up again. "Obviously we will have to wait and see what the full assessment is once he is seen by (club physio) Dolly, and we will be say more on the situation once that has been done."
