Ward refuses to worry

10 Dec 2007 - 13:01:28

John Ward told his Carlisle United players not to be too disheartened by their 2-2 draw at Northampton Town.

A last-gasp Cobblers equaliser cost the Cumbrians top spot in League One, but Ward was not too worried by the late concession.

He told the News & Star: "Yes we wanted to win and the players feel like they have lost the game.

"But I won't lose any sleep because I know I have got a very good side here.

"We've got one of the best defensive records in the league, one of the best goalscoring records and we're in a top-four position."

Meanwhile, Ward is sweating on a hamstring injury sustained by Joe Garner late on in the draw at Sixfields.

He added: "I don't know yet how severe it is. Joe just tightened up on his hamstring.

"We're hopeful it's not a pull. He let us know that it was tightening up, so it was a good decision from him to tell me that so we could shift out of there."
