We take a look at the latest info from both camps ahead of Saturday’s League Two game against Carlisle United at Brunton Park (1pm kick-off).

Mark Cooper will be without George Williams for this weekend’s trip to Carlisle United after it was confirmed that the attacking star has fractured his collarbone.

Williams was forced off less than half an hour into Tuesday’s win over Leicester City Under-21s and will now undergo further assessment to decide on the next steps in his treatment.

Dimitri Sea is still having treatment on a hamstring problem, while Kgosi Nthle is sidelined with knee trouble and neither are expected to feature on Saturday.

Former Carlisle man Mike Jones got through almost 80 minutes on Tuesday night during his return from injury and it remains to be seen whether he will take a place in the travelling squad for the derby.

New Cumbrians boss Keith Millen has admitted he has a few selection dilemmas ahead of Saturday after giving game time to the majority of his squad during the two cup wins he’s overseen since taking charge.

Midfielder Danny Devine will hope to press his claims to face The Bluebirds after starring in the midweek triumph over Morecambe, while Jordan Gibson came off the bench to score against The Shrimps.
