Carlisle 3-1 Bristol Rovers

Carlisle rallied from their Johnstone's Paint Trophy final defeat last weekend to win a League One game where all four goals came in nine second-half minutes.

They opened the scoring as Adam Clayton was brought down, Jeff Hughes was sent off and Ian Harte scored from the spot.

Jeff Heffernan thumped in an equaliser from 10 yards but Jason Price restored the lead, converting at the far post.

Price was bundled over by Steve Elliott and Harte notched his second penalty, sending Mikkel Andersen the wrong way.


Carlisle United boss Greg Abbott told BBC Radio Cumbria:

"I'm delighted, absolutely delighted - this is a big day for the club.

"That wasn't easy today off the back of last week, but we absolutely battered Bristol Rovers today.

"We were fantastic in the light of last weekend; we were outstanding.

"We took the defeat last week against Southampton on the chin, we took the criticism as a football club.

"It was a tough ask today and they've put in a tremendous effort."
