There Will Be Changes

Carlisle will be playing in league two next season after relegation was confirmed on Saturday afternoon following defeat at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Graham Kavanagh took over from Greg Abbott in September but wasn't able to guide the club to safety.

Relegation will see changes made at Brunton Park this summer, how many depends on the budget in place but 'an idea' is something that he has in his mind as he sets about plotting a league one return.

Following the three-nil defeat to Wolves Kavanagh told the media: 'I am going to look at the signings I need to make and I am not going to put numbers on it because I don't know yet what is available in terms of budget.

'I have an idea of what I want to improve but I haven't told the players yet in regard to who's staying and who's going. So until I do that I am not going to divulge too much information. But there will be changes.'

Kavanagh felt he was 'working miracles' with the squad he inherited, which he didn't think was good enough.

He added: 'I felt all the way through that that this squad wasn't good enough when I initially got the job.

'Then when I took over I thought I was working miracles and I thought the new ideas that we implemented were very much coming to fruition and we were a better team.

'That was the case for long periods. I wouldn't say that we played brilliant in all the games but we had a platform and structure that we played to and people were prepared to listen and do the work that was needed.

'Once we started to get injuries and one or two of the leaders and characters came out of the group they couldn't cope.'

How many changes will it take to make things right at Brunton Park?
