Carlisle defender Christian Ribeiro who is on loan from Bristol City is hoping to be back in action for the Cumbrians on Boxing Day.

Ribeiro missed last week’s draw with Wycombe after picking up a hamstring strain, but it was not deemed serious enough for him to return to his parent club and he got back into training this week.

This has now given manager Greg Abbott something of a selection headache after
American Frank Simek stepped in for Ribeiro to make his first appearance since August and did so well.
