Carlisle boss hails youngsters

Carlisle boss Greg Abbott hailed the contribution of his younger players after recording a first win in five games on Saturday.

Abbott was quick to praise Mark Beck, Dave Symington and Brad Potts after an impressive performance against Yeovil at Huish Park and believes they can only improve his squad further.

"The young players are a huge bonus for us," he 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.

"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."
