Carlisle United 6-0 Oldham Athletic

Carlisle United boss John Sheridan enjoyed the visit of his former club Oldham Athletic as his side handed out a 6-0 Boxing Day hammering.

The Cumbrians took a 2-0 half-time lead through goals from Hallam Hope and Jerry Yates, then added four more in the second half with strikes from Ashley Nadesan, Danny Grainger, Gary Liddle and a second for Rotherham loan man Yates.

Carlisle made up for a slow start when they went ahead in the 18th minute as, after a smart one-two with Jack Sowerby, Nadesan's shot came out to Hope and he squeezed the ball home at the far post.

The home side had a second goal on the half hour when Oldham keeper Daniel Iversen punched Jamie Devitt's shot in the direction of Hope who squared the ball back to Yates and he forced in his third goal in three games from close range.

Oldham missed a great chance to pull one back in first-half added time when Chris O'Grady spooned over the crossbar with just goalkeeper Adam Collin to beat. And Carlisle had to weather early second-half pressure before going further ahead on the hour with a diving header by Nadesan from Hope's cross.

Grainger made it 4-0 four minutes later with a 30-yard free-kick before Yates grabbed his second in the 71st minute, beating Iversen in a one-on-one situation after a lightning breakaway.

Gary Liddle rounded off his 100th appearance for Carlisle with a header in stoppage time.
