Plymouth Argyle 0-2 Carlisle United

Carlisle progressed to the second round of the FA Cup with their first win at League Two leaders Plymouth since 1978.

Antony Sweeney acrobatically gave Carlisle the lead as he volleyed past Luke McCormick after Michael Raynes had flicked on a free-kick.

Hallam Hope scored his first-ever Carlisle goal as he reacted quickest after McCormick had saved well from Derek Asamoah's shot.

The defeat was only the second Plymouth have suffered in their last 12 matches.
