Exeter City 2-0 Carlisle United

Matt Grimes
Grimes has scored four goals in 23 appearances for Exeter this season

Exeter extended their unbeaten league run to nine games with a comfortable victory over Carlisle.

Grecians goalkeeper James Hanson produced a stunning save to deny Antony Sweeney from close range midway through the first half.

And Scott Bennett gave Exeter the lead just before the hour, calmly converting Craig Woodman's through ball.

The home side continued to dominate before Matt Grimes sealed the victory with a crisp shot from outside the box.
