Yeovil 0-3 Carlisle

Three second-half goals earned a first-ever victory for Carlisle United at Huish Park against 10-man Yeovil.

French midfielder Flavien Belson marked his debut by being sent off for a second bookable offence on 46 minutes.

The Cumbrians soon cashed in when Liam Noble blasted home from outside the box, from Tom Taiwo's right-wing cross.

Carlisle doubled their lead when Jon-Paul McGovern ran it into an empty net after lobbing keeper Marek Stech before Danny Livesey headed a late third.

But, prior to Belson's red card, only the brilliance of new keeper Stech, also making his debut, on loan from West Ham United, had kept the visitors at bay.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Abbott delighted to end Yeovil hoodoo

Carlisle United manager Greg Abbott told BBC Radio Cumbria:

"It is a lovely scoreline when you win 3-0 but away at Yeovil it is really pleasing to have won convincingly.

"I think Terry (Skiverton) will probably agree on the day that we were very strong and played some fantastic football and on another day might have had one or two more.

"We have said time and time again that they are a credit to work with, their attitude and their application. We have our ups and downs but we always get an honest shift out of them, and this is a long, long trip."
