Carlisle have injury concerns over defenders Ian Harte and Danny Livesey and midfielder Tom Taiwo for the home clash with Walsall.

Livesey and Harte were forced out of last week's defeat at Southampton with stomach/pelvis and groin injuries respectively. Taiwo sustained an ankle injury in the same match.

Centre-half Livesey had a scan in midweek and was waiting to learn the full extent of the injury, while Harte and Taiwo have both returned to training and are hoping to be included in the squad.

David Raven is on stand-by should Livesey miss out.

Striker Jason Price, on loan from Millwall, stepped off the substitutes' bench last week after missing the previous two games with a hamstring strain and is pushing for a return to the starting line-up.

Kevan Hurst (knee), Joe Anyinsah (double hernia), Matt Robson and Andy Cook (both foot) and Peter Murphy (knee) all remain sidelined.

Rhys Weston is available for Walsall having returned from a two-day trial with Scottish Premier League side Motherwell.

The defender spent Tuesday and Wednesday north of the border before coming back to the midlands on Thursday to train with his team-mates ahead of the clash.

Weston started last weekend`s 3-1 home win over Hartlepool and is again likely to start at Brunton Park, but he will face competition from the returning Darryl Westlake who missed out seven days ago due to an ankle injury.

Captain and fellow defender Mark Hughes also returns having completed a two-match suspension.

But midfielder Dwayne Mattis (Achilles) and striker Darren Byfield (knee) continue to miss out, suggesting their seasons may be over with just one further game remaining at home to MK Dons.
