Carlisle reckons Burnley need an influx of talent this winter to boost their hopes of survival.
He said: "Should we bring players in? Absolutely. We have had a brilliant start to the season and in many ways we have exceeded expectations but we can't stand still.
"I think the manager is looking at a few possible acquisitions and I like that. It is important we keep growing and new players would enhance the competition.
"We can't stand still in this league - winter is a crucial period and with the signings the manager has made, he has proven he can attract quality to this club."
