Carlisle United 2-0 Accrington Stanley

Charlie Wyke
Charlie Wyke scored his ninth goal of the season in all competitions

Carlisle scored two first-half goals to beat fellow League Two play-off hopefuls Accrington at Brunton Park.

Home skipper Michael Raynes was stretchered off early on with a head injury in a scrappy first period.

Carlisle broke the deadlock in the 28th minute when Charlie Wyke slotted home from eight yards following a nicely-worked free-kick.

The home side then doubled their lead when Wyke's effort found Alex Gilliead, who drilled home from 12 yards.
