Carlisle United 0-3 York City

York City moved above Carlisle United and up to 18th in League Two thanks to an impressive 3-0 win at Brunton Park.

The visitors dominated and deservedly went ahead just before half-time when Femi Ilesanmi's cross was flicked on by Wes Fletcher and Josh Carson fired in.

After the break, Luke Summerfield doubled the lead with a curling effort from 20 yards and Michael Coulson sent a third into the top corner late on.

The result left Carlisle just two points above the relegation zone.

York City manager Russ Wilcox told BBC Radio York:

"I'm absolutely delighted. An outstanding performance.

Wilcox on Carlisle v York City

"I think our performance was nearly as good as the fans' performance. They've played a huge role in what we've done today.

"We've given them an outstanding performance full of quality, endeavour and desire.

"I just thought today was the full package. We played forward with more purpose and scored three brilliant goals."
