Carlisle defender Pascal Chimbonda appears to have lost his race to be fit for the FA Cup replay against Boreham Wood.
The former Wigan, Tottenham and Blackburn full-back has missed the last three games due to a groin injury and he will not be rushed back for the first-round replay.
Manager Graham Kavanagh, who has no new injury or suspension problems, has confirmed goalkeeper Greg Fleming will return to the starting line-up after making way at the weekend for Ben Amos, signed last week on loan from Manchester United.
Defenders Chris Chantler and Danny Livesey, teenage midfielder Brad Potts, plus striker Dave Symington are all in contention.
Boreham Wood have Mark Jones available as they look to cause an FA Cup giant-killing.
The defender is available to return for the Conference South side following a one-match ban and is pushing for a start.
And Boreham Wood, who have reached the second round just twice in the history, are boosted by the news that loan strikers David Moli and Austin Lipman, on loan from Wolves and Arsenal respectively, are eligible to play.
The two sides played out a goalless draw earlier this month and they will do battle again with a home tie against Brentford the reward for the winners of the replay.
