Greg Abbott Praises Carlisle’s Young Guns

Carlisle United Manager Greg Abbott has praised the efforts of his younger players after the club picked up a first win in five league games at the weekend.

Abbott picked out Mark Beck, Dave Symington and Brad Potts after an impressive 3-1 win at Yeovil.

“The young players are a huge bonus for us,” Abbott told BBC Radio Cumbria.

“We’ve seen some big individual performances and that was important. We needed the win and now we want to build on it.”

Teenage striker Beck scored twice before Joe Garner sealed victory 20 minutes from time.

The win lifted the Cumbrians four points clear of the League One relegation zone, and Abbott said it showed the squad has got enough quality to climb the table.

“Defensively we were much more solid, [goalkeeper] Adam [Collin] has been brave and he’s come for things, made his blocks and made his saves.”

“I think the run Joe [Garner] is on shows why we wanted to keep him here. Danny Livesey and Mike Edwards were fantastic and they got some really good cover from the midfield four.”

“We’ve told Mark Beck to look at how Joe Garner does things and he put himself about and made himself a nuisance.”

“He also got his first league goals and that will be something which should give him a huge boost. Dave Symington has that level of unpredictability about him and he did some good things.”

“Brad Potts was immense in midfield for us and put in an unbelievable shift. It’s looking good but they all know they still have work to do.”

With these lads and with the players coming back from injury we think we’re going to have a nice little unit.”
