Carlisle 2-0 Wrexham
All the action from the LDV Vans Trophy

Carlisle United reached the semi-finals of the LDV Vans Trophy Northern Section with a deserved victory over Division Three rivals Wrexham.

Former Birmingham and Port Vale winger Jon McCarthy opened the scoring after 41 minutes.

Skipper Peter Murphy cleverly picked out Leon Osman who hit the crossbar with a powerful shot, only for McCarthy to head home the rebound and grab his first goal for the club.

Carlisle could have doubled their lead on the stroke of half time, but Craig Farrell's fierce 10-yard shot was well blocked by Dragons goalkeeper Paul Whitfield.

The Cumbrians did make sure of a place in the last eight a minute from time.

Ritchie Foran drifted past defender Dennis Lawrence and slipped a pinpoint pass to Paul Robinson who scored from five yards.

Wrexham had chances, home goalkeeper Matty Glennon did well to save Lee Trundle's 25th-minute shot, and forced Carlos Edwards to fire wide after a one-on-one.


Carlisle: Glennon, Shelley, Kelly, Murphy, Maddison, McCarthy, Summerbell, Osman, McGill, Farrell, McDonagh. Subs: Birch, Foran, Robinson, Baldacchino, Taylor.

Wrexham: Whitfield, Pejic, Lawrence, Roberts, Carlos Edwards, Whitley, Ferguson, Barrett, Paul Edwards, Morrell, Trundle. Subs: Holmes, Lee Jones, Rogers, Sam, Morgan.

Referee: M Pike (Cumbria).
