Carlisle United 0-1 Cambridge United

A Liam Hughes goal gave Cambridge their first win in five as they overcame struggling Carlisle.

The hosts had chances to take a first-half lead but Antony Sweeney headed just wide and Steven Rigg hit the bar.

Hughes scored with the visiting side's only shot on target as his 25-yard deflected effort gave home keeper Mark Gillespie no chance.

Carlisle have lost their last three and remain one place above the League Two drop zone.
