Rochdale 2-1 Carlisle: Dale beat Cumbrians to progress in EFL Cup

Aaron Morley
Aaron Morley scored a spectacular goal for Rochdale to secure their progress to round three

Rochdale resisted a late comeback from Carlisle to win 2-1 and secure a place in the Carabao Cup third round.

The home side opened the scoring in spectacular fashion in the 11th minute when Aaron Morley gathered the ball in space 25 yards from goal and sent a curling shot against the inside of Adam Collin's post and into the net.

Morley was involved minutes later with a floated pass into Callum Camps, which the midfielder in turn fed to Matty Done, who pulled his left-footed effort wide of the post.

Done scored the League One side's second goal on the half hour, seizing on Byron Webster's air kick, then racing through unmarked and drawing Collin off his line before applying a clinical finish.

After the break, Morley and Dooley were narrowly off target with curling efforts from the edge of the area while Ollie Rathbone saw a 20-yard drive charged down.

The visitors grabbed a lifeline in the 70th minute when substitute Harry McKirdy raced through the Dale defence and was upended by Eoghan O'Connell. Jack Bridge hammered the resulting spot-kick into the middle of Robert Sanchez's goal.

The League Two visitors then had what appeared a clear penalty turned away when Jimmy Keohane blocked McKirdy's cross with his arm.
