Carlisle Utd's Lee Miller and Chris Chantler out for season
Last updated at 11:00, Wednesday, 11 April 2012
Lee Miller and Chris Chantler have been ruled out for the rest of the season in a massive blow to Carlisle United's promotion hopes.
Both players underwent scans on their respective groin and hamstring injuries in Darlington yesterday.
The Blues received the results today and have confirmed that neither player will play any more part in Carlisle's campaign.
Top scorer Miller, arguably United's most important player, injured his groin during Monday's goalless draw with Scunthorpe.
Versatile defender/midfielder Chantler, meanwhile, has been battling a hamstring problem since the March 31 victory against Huddersfield.
Both will miss Carlisle's remaining five games and will not be available should Greg Abbott's side make the play-offs, the Blues say.
United have not revealed details on the exact nature of both injuries but say Miller and Chantler "are expected to be fit for the start of next season."

Have your say
Talk about Negative vibes.. lets try to be positive. We are just playing into Charlton hands.. lets try and show we are not a one man team and rise to to challenge. McGovern has shown his quality! get a grip.
I'm sat here hoping that we haven't seen the last performance in a Carlisle shirt by Lee Miller... He has attracted a lot of interest since coming to Brunton Park and if he was to go, a replacement would be very dificult to find.
Jordan Cook needs to start every match from now on and show us what he is capable of.
Hop Chantler recovers well for next season as he has a very bright future ahead of him.
