Charlton 2-0 Carlisle

Charlton progressed to round three of the FA Cup with victory over Carlisle.

After a quiet first half, Carlisle almost took the lead through Matty Robson's powerful effort before Bradley Pritchard went close for the hosts.

The Addicks broke the deadlock when defender Michael Morrison prodded home after his first effort was blocked.

Francois Zoko went close to levelling for the Cumbrians before Yann Kermorgant's cross was converted by Jason Euell.


Charlton manager Chris Powell told BBC London 94.9:

"I'm really happy we have progressed and this win keeps our winning mentality going.

"I had to try and get the balance right today and give other players a start but I'm really happy they all contributed to the 2-0 win today.

"In the first half they were on the front foot and we put us under pressure."

Carlisle United manager Greg Abbott told BBC Radio Cumbria:

"Eighty to ninety percent of our play was decent, we just couldn't find that killer pass, that bit of quality around the Charlton goal.

"That's what has held us back, but it's not as easy to get goals against Charlton as it is against Alfreton, so fair play to them.

"There's a bit of credit there."
