Kavanagh: Not Going Down Without Fighting

Kavanagh: Not Going Down Without Fighting

Carlisle suffered another heavy defeat on Easter Monday as they slipped closer to relegation into league two.

A 4-1 defeat at Peterborough United leaves Carlisle now three points adrift of safety, however they do have a game in hand but victories against Oldham Athletic and Crawley Town are a must for the Cumbrians with league one champions Wolverhampton Wanderers the final side faced.

Graham Kavanagh is looking for back-to-back wins to give his side hope and isn't going to do down without a fight.

Kavanagh told BBC Radio Cumbria: 'I am not going down without fighting, I don't care what anyone says.

'If we win the two games we go to Wolves with it all to play for.'

Attendances have been around the 4,200 mark on average, this is a problem that has continued to dog the club but Kavanagh is calling for all the support possible for the Oldham game at Brunton Park this weekend.

The Carlisle boss has also praised the support that has been given but can understand why some might choose not to but wants to make it clear that his side will be 'fighting' until the end.

He added: 'The fans that come and support us as they have done, I am sure they have been magnificent.

'Again today they clapped the players off and I thought that was a credit to them.

'I know one or two are disappointed and I fully understand that, so if you can come down on Saturday and you want to have a part to play then brilliant.

'If not then I understand your reasons but we will be fighting, and I know for a fact I certainly will.'

This site is looking for an editor (at least contributor), so if a fan can offer us a genuine opinion from someone that supports them we would love to share it with the masses!
