Carlisle United 0-2 Plymouth Argyle

Plymouth Argyle beat Carlisle at Blackburn's home ground to keep up their League Two promotion hopes.

Carlisle, who played their 'home' fixture at Ewood Park after Storm Desmond flooded Brunton Park, conceded midway through the first half.

Ryan Brunt gave the visitors the lead when his shot took a big deflection to beat Carlisle keeper Mark Gillespie.

Wylde sealed victory for Plymouth when he fired in a low shot which deflected off Troy Archibald-Henville to go in.
