Kavanagh: It Was A Nervous Performance

Kavanagh: It Was A Nervous Performance

The league one season move into it's penultimate round over the weekend with Carlisle in action at home for the last time in the current campaign.

Carlisle season at Brunton Park ended in disappointing fashion with a 'chorus of boos' greeting the fulltime whistle as the club slipped to a 1-0 defeat against Oldham Athletic.

Graham Kavanagh didn't think that he could fault his players too much but is calling for his players to be a bit 'braver' on Tuesday night with him hopeful that away from home the Cumbrians will be a little less nervous and offer more than just 'huff and puff'.

The Carlisle boss told the media: 'The players tried their hardest and I can't fault their honesty and effort.

'We will have to go again on Tuesday and give a performance that is a bit braver than it was here.

'You need that bravery and coolness and we probably didn't have enough leaders to steady the ship at the right time.

'We huffed and puffed, but it was a nervous performance.

'We have been authors of our own downfall at times, but we have to keep fighting, although it will be difficult to pick the players up.'

James Dayton came off the bench to score the winner for Oldham with 20-minutes to play and leave Carlisle three-points from safety with two games to play including a game in hand at Crawley Town on Tuesday night.

He added: 'It's a huge disappointment, but we are looking to end the season well.'
