    Carlisle dismiss manager McDonald

    And they say that there is pressure in the EPL.

    The Carlisle board say that after one game - a draw- they have lost confidence in their manager

    Carlisle United have sacked manager Neil McDonald after just one match of the new League One season.

    McDonald had taken over at Brunton Park in June 2006 following Paul Simpson's move to Preston, and led the Cumbrians to eighth place last season.
    The shock move was revealed in a statement on the club's website.
    "The board of Carlisle United regret to say that they have lost confidence in Neil McDonald and are terminating his contract forthwith," it read.

    "They thank him for his hard work at the club and wish him all the best for his future career. Greg Abbott has been appointed as caretaker manager."
    The dismissal comes just two days after the Cumbrians began the new season with a 1-1 draw at Walsall - having broken their transfer record to sign Blackburn striker Joe Garner for 140,000 on Friday.
    Having annouced McDonald's exit on Monday morning, the club issued a second statement later that afternoon - insisting that it would have no effect on the Garner transfer. "The termination of the contract is not a knee-jerk reaction, and is not part of any disciplinary action," it read.
