The club do not play again until Wednesday evening when Sheffield United visit MEMS Priestfield Stadium, but that hasn’t stopped the team from preparing for a game as normal.

Speaking to the club’s official website he said: “We’ve been in every day apart from Wednesday which is our normal day off. We are preparing as if the game was at the weekend, it’s a normal schedule.

“It will be difficult but if we play the way we did last Saturday and in the past then there is no reason why we can’t go out and get a good result.

“A weekend off will be nice, it will feel a bit weird with no game but I’ll be looking forward to Wednesday.”

He said: “To be honest I didn’t know what the lads were all doing when I first went in to the hotel and all of the lads were shouting at their phones.

“I thought I need to get involved with this, I had a go and I was terrible but one of the lads mentioned that if someone scores at Carlisle then do the celebration.

“I forgot to do it to be honest; it was only when I turned round and the lads were coming towards me all giving it some so I thought I would chuck it out.

“I’ve seen the clip and I had a little chuckle, it looks decent with the way he has done the sound.

“I can’t play it anymore as I’ve already cracked one screen!

“It made a change for me to take my only chance of the game! That’s the way it goes, in other matches I’ve had three or four chances and only scored one – I’m really enjoying my Football and playing every week.

“It’s not just me though, the other lads are creating chances for me and everything is going well right now and long may it continue.”

Cody took time out to praise the 194 supporters that made the long trip to Cumbria, and he is thankful for their continued efforts to get behind the team.

He added: “Unbelievable, no different to any other game to be fair as they always turn out in their numbers. That’s a hell of a long way to go and credit to them, die-hard fans and it was very cold sitting in the stands.

“They have been great all season.”
