Carlisle   1 - 0   Notts County

Carlisle 1-0 Notts County

Carlisle 1-0 Notts County

Notts County were left to rue a host of missed chances as Gary Madine's winner helped Carlisle close the gap on League One leaders Brighton to three points.

Madine showed real determination to get on the end of Matthew Robson's cross and turn the ball in after the break.

But Notts paid the price for wasting a number of fine chances with former Cumbrians striker Karl Hawley blazing over and also heading wastefully wide.

Mike Edwards came closest for Notts but his second-half header hit the post.

But the Magpies will only have themselves to blame for failing to take at least a point from their trip to Brunton Park.

They dominated the first half with John Spicer twice having shots on goal and Craig Westcarr also sending a header just off target.

The visitors' best opening saw Hawley fire a shot high over the bar from close range.

The hosts barely threatened although a rare attack saw Francois Zoko's 18-yard effort saved by keeper Rob Burch.

Carlisle played with more urgency after the break but Notts carved out two fine chances soon after the turnaround.

Once again Hawley had a glorious opportunity but he failed to get his header on target from John Thompson's teasing cross after a fine team move.

Edwards then hit the bar with a header from a Ben Davies corner and Kystian Pearce was unable to turn in the follow-up.

Home keeper Adam Collin also pulled off a superb one-handed save to deny Kevin Smith.

But the home side started to come into the match more and Craig Curran saw a header drop onto the top of the net.

And they produced the game's decisive moment when a fine move down the left saw Madine get across his marker and turn the ball in.

The goal sparked the Cumbrians into life and they could have added more late on, Madine squandering a glorious opening when he shot wide from 10 yards and Zoko also going close.


Carlisle United boss Greg Abbott told BBC Radio Cumbria:
"It sums up the best and worst of us in a game.

"It was hard work, I'm absolutely exhausted, I think the players are to be honest, they've put in a fantastic effort.

"It was a fantastic match, both teams contributed in their own ways, it was a terrific game of football, and we're absolutely delighted to win this game."

Notts County manager Craig Short told BBC Radio Nottingham:
"That's probably the next level of performance today. We've played so well against a team that have been doing well at home. We've played some exceptional stuff today.

"The formation we played, with a diamond to match up against their diamond, helps you play a bit more football through the middle. But every player, one to 11, I pat them all on the back.

"Some very, very good individual performances but as a team we were exceptional and we didn't get what we deserved."
