Carlisle have extended the loan of Hull City defender Conor Townsend for a further two months.

The 20-year-old moved to Brunton Park on an initial one-month loan and has since made three appearances for the Cumbrians amid a period of upheaval.

Former boss Greg Abbott, who brought him to the club, was sacked with assistant Graham Kavanagh taking over on a caretaker basis.

"Conor has adapted to life in League One," Kavanagh told the club website.external-link

Townsend will be available for the Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie with Morecambe next month after Hull gave permission.
