LONDON, Apr 1, CMC — Bermudian winger Reggie Lambe fired home his seventh goal of the season as Carlisle United won 2-0 at 10-man Yeovil Town’s Huish Park ground on Saturday to move back into the play-off places in England’s League Two.
The victory, with a goal in each half, ended Carlisle’s seven-match win-less run.
John O’Sullivan gave the visitors, who had lost six of their previous seven games, an early advantage and 26-year-old Lambe doubled their lead two minutes after the hosts had been reduced to 10 men when midfielder Ben Whitfield was shown a straight red card.
O’Sullivan broke a goal drought that had stretched to 701 minutes when he headed home a quickly-taken Danny Grainger free-kick past goalkeeper Artur Krysiak.
Yeovil were left with a mountain to climb on 53 minutes when Bournemouth loanee Whitfield appeared to elbow Tom Miller and was sent off.
Carlisle cashed in on 55 minutes as Lambe was played in behind and although Krysiak saved the Bermudian’s first effort, he turned it in at the second attempt, enabling Carlisle to move into the play-off spots above Blackpool, who lost at Luton Town.
Lambe’s fellow countryman Nahki Wells was out of luck after coming on as a second-half substitute for promotion-chasing Championship club Huddersfield Town and could not prevent his side slipping to a 1-0 home defeat against strugglers Burton Albion.
