Shaun Miller scored 16 goals for Morecambe last season

League Two side Carlisle United scored twice in the first half against Port Vale to ease into the second round of the EFL Cup.

The hosts dominated the first 45 minutes and Charlie Wyke turned home from close range for the lead.

Shaun Miller wasted a one-on-one chance to double the advantage but latched onto Nicky Adams' pass to add a second.

Anthony Grant's strike in the 50th minute gave Vale hope, but the third-tier side could not find a leveller.
