The fallout of Storm Desmond has prevented Carlisle from playing at Brunton Park, this has seen United play home games at Preston’s Deepdale and Blackburn’s Ewood Park so far with Blackpool’s Bloomfield Road hosting the FA Cup tie with Yeovil on Saturday.

It goes without saying Keith Curle would prefer to have Carlisle playing at Brunton Park but he’s said having these games played away from home isn’t having a negative impact on United, telling the BBC.

‘There’s a lot of distractions that go by that can affect the players but I don’t think we’ve had an adverse effect.’

The defeat to Plymouth at Ewood on Saturday was the first football Carlisle had seen since 19th December due to the Boxing Day meeting at Accrington being postponed and the scheduled meeting with Hartlepool to end the year having already been called off.

Curle finished by talking about player recruitment this month with him looking to ‘freshen things up’ if the right players are available.

‘There’s areas we need to work on, there’s still areas of quality that we need to improve, the structure and formation could have done with some more options. The window’s open now and hopefully the opportunity is there to freshen things up in the right areas, but there’s no panic because the foundations I am happy with.’
