Abbot’s charges suffered a horrendous start to the season on Saturday when they went down 5-1 at home to Leyton Orient and the former Hull City defender will be hoping for an immediate response, telling BBC Radio Cumbria that his players need to get “ a performance that carries us,”
The 49 year old added “The players have a responsibility to go out there and perform and get better performances which lead to better results and leads to a better feeling around the place”
Blackburn meanwhile made a solid start to their campaign with a draw away to Derby and while they needed a late goal from Leon Best to grab their share of the spoils boss Gary Bowyer felt his side deserved more , telling Sky Sports
“I thought we deserved three points, to be perfectly honest, I thought we were magnificent today in the way we passed the ball in the first 20 minutes. The injury to Rochina just broke our stride, but looking at how we responded in the second half, I can’t fault the effort from the players.
The injury to Rochina who is set for a three month spell on the side-lines after dislocating his shoulder means both teams will come into the game without key strikers. Carlisle will be minus the services of the suspended Lee Miller after they choose not to appeal against his sending off on Saturday.
Rochina will more than likely be replaced by Best while Yann Songo’o could feature after finally agreeing terms with Blackburn. The Cameroon defender has been training with the club for the past month and has impressed in pre-season.
John Beck could come in for Miller in the Carlisle side with Abbot forced to make do, once again, without injured pair Sean O’Hanlon (knee injury) and Matty Robson (back injury).
Blackburn have strong pedigree in the League Cup winning the competition back in 2002 and reaching the quarter finals in 5 of the last 8 years however last year was a campaign to forget for Rovers as they crashed out at the hands of the MK Dons in the second round.
Carlisle meanwhile will be looking emulate last season’s success when they knocked Ipswich out at the same stage. The two clubs have met twice before in the competition with Carlisle coming out on top on both occasions, winning 2-1 in their most recent meeting 44 years ago.
