Coventry City 1-2 Carlisle United

Sam Byrne

On-loan Manchester United man Sam Byrne scored the winner as Carlisle hit back to beat Coventry at Sixfields.

The Sky Blues went ahead in the first half through Franck Moussa, who slotted home his 14th goal of the season.

The visitors found the equaliser after 55 minutes, when Liam Millar found unmarked Liam Noble who finished into the corner of the net.

United completed their comeback as substitute Byrne finished emphatically past Joe Murphy in the 70th minute.
