Graham Kavanagh: Carlisle keep fighting to avoid League One drop

Graham Kavanagh

Manager Graham Kavanagh has said he will "keep fighting" to keep Carlisle United in League One after

The loss leaves the Cumbrians in the bottom four and three points adrift of safety, with games against Oldham, Crawley and Wolves still to play.

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

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

United round off their home campaign with the visit of Oldham on Saturday, who need a point to guarantee their League One status.

Attendances have hovered between 3,500 and 4,000 for the second half of the term, with a season average of 4,195, and Kavanagh is sympathetic to potential apathy for the weekend fixture but expects good support.

"The fans that come and support us as they have done, I am sure they have been magnificent," he said.

"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."
