Carlisle future uncertain

There could be significant developments this week regarding the future of centre-back Clarke Carlisle, according to York City manager Gary Mills.

"Everybody will find out in the week what was behind that" - Gary Mills
The 33-year-old former Burnley stalwart and current PFA chairman was surprisingly left on the bench and replaced by Chris Doig for the weekend visit to Port Vale.

Carlisle only arrived Bootham Crescent at the end of August on a short-term deal running through to January and has since appeared fourteen times.

"Everybody will find out in the week what was behind that," Mills told The Press. "There are two or three reasons and one is that I wanted to play from the back a bit more. We've not done that as much with Clarke in the team.

"We've been throwing the ball down centre-backs' throats in recent games but Chris Doig is very good at playing out from the back," he added. "If you don't give away possession, the opposition can't score and he also reads the game well."
