Morecambe 0-1 Carlisle United

David Amoo scored the only goal against Morecambe as Carlisle United moved five points clear of the League Two relegation places.

Brad Potts found Amoo in the box before the forward cut inside to force a shot under Morecambe keeper Scott Davies.

Morecambe's Kevin Ellison had earlier seen an effort cleared off the line.

Padraig Amond called Cumbrians goalkeeper Dan Hanford into action late on, having had an 80th-minute effort ruled out for offside.
