Carlisle United manager Steven Pressley has confirmed that the Cumbrians will be without joint leading scorer Olufela Olomola when his side travel to the loan strikers’ parent club Scunthorpe tomorrow.
Pressley admitted that whilst there was no contractual agreement between the two clubs to stop Olomola facing the Iron, the former Southampton man would not play any part at the Sands Venue Stadium out of respect to his parent club.
“We’ll be without Olufela Olomola,” he confirmed to Carlisle United’s official website.
“There’s nothing in the loan contract to say he can’t play, but there’s always an agreement between clubs in these situations that you just don’t do it.
“We’re going to respect the fact that he’s here on loan and it’s normal that you wouldn’t play him against his parent club.”
On Scunthorpe, Pressley said he was expecting a tough test and added: “It’s a squad he’s (Paul Hurst) inherited and it may take a bit of time for him to get them playing the way he needs them to play.”
