Carlisle United 1-0 Accrington Stanley

Derek Asamoah's first-half goal was enough for Carlisle to claim all three points against Accrington Stanley.

Asamoah coolly slipped the ball past the advancing Accrington keeper Jack Rose to give the hosts a first-half lead at Brunton Park.

John O'Sullivan's drive from distance almost put Stanley back in it before Shay McCartan sliced wide.

Carlisle held on despite Sean Maguire's powerful late header almost beating Cumbrians goalkeeper Dan Hanford.
