Carlisle United loan keeper Lukas Jensen returned to his Premier League parent club for some reserve action last night.

The 22-year-old was involved for Burnley' Under-23s in a game against Everton.

The big Dane started the game and played the full 90 minutes as the Clarets went down to a 2-0 defeat in the Premier League Cup.

Rhys Hughes and Tom Cannon got Everton's goals in the game at Southport.

Jensen remains on a season-long loan at Brunton Park but was allowed to feature for Burnley's young second string.

He will be expected to be back in the squad for this weekend's League Two trip to Northampton.

The outing for Burnley came after Jensen lost his place in the United side to experienced new signing Mark Howard.

The latter has started Carlisle's last three games.

He took Jensen's place after the young loanee made his league debut in the 3-0 defeat at Birstol Rovers, which proved the final game of Chris Beech's reign.

Jensen had been called into the side after an injury to Magnus Norman, who started the season as first choice.

Norman broke a bone in his leg and suffered ligament damage in United's defeat to Forest Green on October 2, and recently said he had undergone a successful operation.

That prompted Carlisle to run the rule over ex-Leicester keeper Adam Smith in a reserve fixture, before turning to former Scunthorpe, Blackpool, Bolton and Sheffield United man Howard on a short-term deal.

United also have young keepers Gabe Breeze, Scott Simons and Lewis Boyd in the ranks with all three competing for a place in tonight's FA Youth Cup first round clash with Oldham (Brunton Park 7pm).
