Kelvin Etuhu says Carlisle United's fans should have no concerns about their campaign as they aim to make further progress up League Two tonight.

The Blues host Stevenage (Brunton Park, 7.45pm) seeking back-to-back wins after Saturday's 5-0 rout at Crewe.

The big win at the weekend was much-needed after a difficult period for Keith Curle's side.

Midfielder Etuhu, though, says United's set-up and work ethic was always going to stand them in good stead even in hard times.

The summer signing said: "There should be no concerns for the fans.

"We're all good lads, we all want to work hard, we've all got a really good dressing room and we all work hard for the manager.

"The manager's brilliant - there's nothing for the fans to worry about. Everything behind the scenes is fine."

Tonight's game is likely to see a home debut for new signing Clint Hill, who had a solid debut at Crewe.

Etuhu admitted the 38-year-old has already made his mark since joining on a short-term deal.

"He's had a very big influence," Etuhu said. "His experience is vital for us.

"He talks a lot, helps on the pitch, is very vocal, and it's great to have someone with his experience in the team."

Etuhu his eyeing his fourth United outing tonight having put in a good display three days ago.

The 29-year-old former Bury man played his part in the win that took Carlisle up to 15th in the table.

He said: "I still want to get fitter, and that will come with the games, as they come thick and fast.

"I'm getting there, still working hard on the training field, still trying to get the minutes in, and I'm pretty pleased with the way it's going so far.

"Saturday was a good performance from the team - solid, very disciplined and while it's always nice to win away from home, to get a clean sheet and score so many goals is an added bonus.

"The dressing room needed it, the team needed it. We've been working really hard in training, sticking to the ethics of the game, and to get that win just shows what happens when you keep working at it even in the hard times.

Etuhu was praised by Curle for helping keep Crewe danger man George Cooper quiet on the United right.

The midfielder added: "That was part of the game plan - he [Cooper] was obviously a danger player for them so we worked on it through the week, how to stop him from being an influence on the game, and it worked well."

On tonight's test against Darren Sarll's ninth-placed visitors, he added: "It's another big game for us and we want to be on the front foot.

"You always have to start well, it's a fundamental. We did that on Saturday and got a grip of the game and hopefully we can do that again."
