League One Carlisle have extended the loan of Hull City defender Conor Townsend for a further two months. The 20-year-old 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.
