Edwards, 32, spent eight years at Meadow Lane before making the move to Brunton Park in the summer and looks set to face his former team-mates on Saturday.

With Abbott looking for his side to improve on their record of one home league win this season, he feels Edwards' inside information could be vital.

He told the Carlisle News & Star: "Mike has got a lot on his plate keeping himself fit and preparing for the threat of Francois (Zoko), Lee Hughes and the rest.

"We know a lot about Notts County, as we do a lot of the teams at this level.

"But Mike's knowledge and information will be invaluable."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
