Carlisle United 3-1 Crawley Town

Charlie Wyke scored twice as Carlisle United beat Crawley Town to move up to sixth in League Two.

Wyke opened the scoring after only two minutes when his header found the top corner and he slotted home from eight yards to double the lead.

Crawley got back into the game as Rhys Murphy met Lewis Young's cross with diving header but Jabo Ibehre side-footed home Carlisle's third.

The Reds' Roarie Deacon saw a late effort go high over the bar.

Crawley Town boss Mark Yates told BBC Surrey:

Yates on Carlisle v Crawley

"My players didn't do the supporters and this club justice. We were soft, we were weak and we let them bully us over the pitch.

"League Two is about being up for every game and being committed and courageous physically and mentally. We weren't any of that.

"Once the third goal went in we might as well have gone home and we might as well and got on the coach to get down the M6 quicker.

"We lacked know-how, a bit of quality and any sort of decent service. League Two is about hard work and being tough resilient and we didn't learn anything."
