Greg Abbott lifted by Carlisle displays despite losing run

Carlisle United manager Greg Abbott is confident results will soon complement performances, despite a run of three League One games without a win.

Abbott's side had 18 shots on goal but failed to score in

"You're worried when you play well and lose because where do we go from there," Abbott told BBC Radio Cumbria.

"However if we play like that for the majority of the season we will win more games than we lose."

The Cumbrians last victory, at Walsall on 6 October, was followed by a 4-0 home defeat by Notts County that stalled the club's top-half ambitions.

After the 2-0 win at Coventry the club were 10th in the table but Saturday's loss leaves Carlisle in 17th going into Tuesday's visit of Oldham to Brunton Park.

"Well, you just go again, we regroup, we tell them to take all the positives out of it and we do have to keep the clean sheet," Abbott said,

"I think if we can turn in the same type of performance against Oldham with the same amount of chances, then I think we should be alright.

"We just dust ourselves down, we are as brave as we can be, we stand tall, we take the good things out of the game and try to get a result on Tuesday.

"It might just be that we get one at home and the fans can get on our side and cheer us through and give us that support that we genuinely need. The team needs a result again."
