Team news for Carlisle United

28 July 2017

Danny Graham captains the side on his return to his former club, as Rovers face Carlisle United in their final friendly of the summer.

The 31-year-old striker, who has netted in four of Rovers' five pre-season outings, played over 100 games for the Cumbrian side earlier in his career and is joined by new signing Dominic Samuel in attack.

Craig Conway again misses out with a troublesome hamstring injury, whilst Darragh Lenihan, Charlie Mulgrew and Ben Gladwin all aren't risked due to minor niggles.

That means that Ryan Nyambe is expected to line up alongside Elliott Ward in the centre of defence.

Corry Evans returns to the team after recovering from an ankle knock.

CARLISLE UNITED: Bonham, Miller, Grainger, Joyce, Liddle, Parkes, Jones, Hope, Adams, Devitt, Lambe.
Subs: Bacon, Nabi, Bennett, Ellis, Miller, Salkeld, Holt, Egan, Trialist.

ROVERS: Raya, Caddis, Nyambe, Ward, Williams, Smallwood, Evans, Bennett, Dack, Samuel, Graham (c).
Subs: Fisher, Platt, Doyle, Tomlinson, Whittingham, Feeney, Rankin-Costello, Nuttall.
