Carlisle United have signed left-back Paul Black on a one-month loan from League Two side Mansfield Town.

The 23-year-old is available for the Cumbrians' trip to Bradford City on Saturday and provides cover for on-loan Manchester United defender Reece James.

"Reece isn't going to be available for tomorrow and it's an area we needed to cover," manager Greg Abbott told the club website.

Black was with Tranmere last season, where he made 11 appearances.

Before joining Rovers in July 2012, the defender made 70 appearances for Oldham Athletic.
