'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Abbott: We haven't found that fluency yet

The key word used by Greg Abbott following Tuesday's 0-0 draw with Crewe was "fluency". This, as he told BBC Radio Cumbria, has been lacking from his side so far season.

Lee Miller missing through injury hasn't helped matters either with the side having to play a "different system" as a result: 'We were in the dressing room and we said that we are not as fluent as we would like to be just right at the minute.

'We are playing a slightly different system without our creative players, we are without a big player up front in Lee Miller, so it is going to be a little bit more difficult.

'You just get a bit frustrated but we all want to be better and we want to play better football, but we have got to get through this period picking up points as we go along.

'We have tried to put the foot on the gas but we haven't found that fluency yet and we might have to just start looking at a different style of play and find another way of doing it.'

Nevertheless, at home or not, the Carlisle boss was happy enough with a point against in-form Crewe: 'It is a good point.'
