New signing Jason Price is expected to be included in Carlisle`s squad for the home clash with Colchester.

Price, signed on loan from Millwall until the end of the season, has been drafted in as cover for a quartet of injured strikers.

Darryl Duffy, on loan from Bristol Rovers, missed last week's home defeat to Millwall due to a groin injury, while fellow forward Scott Dobie was forced off with a similar problem midway through the second half.

Andy Cook (foot) has been sidelined since November and Joe Anyinsah is recovering from hernia surgery.

Manager Greg Abbott has no other new injury or suspension problems, but might want to make changes after seeing his side miss a host of chances in last Saturday's home defeat.

Colchester, meanwhile, will be without midfielder Kem Izzet.

Izzet collected his 10th booking of the season in Monday night's goalless draw with Brighton and starts a two-game ban, so Phil Ifil or Ashley Vincent will come in.

Fellow midfielder John-Joe O'Toole faces a late check on the foot injury he suffered against the Seagulls while striker Clive Platt also came off with a knock, but boss Aidy Boothroyd is confident both will be fit.

Defender Paul Reid has had an injection in his back in a bid to get over the series of niggles he has suffered since recovering from a long-term knee injury and could be back next week.

Boothroyd has added rookie striker Craig Arnott, 17, to his squad following some impressive displays in the reserves.
