Carlisle United will point to the appointment of Keith Curle as being a major factor in their 3-0 win over Stevenage on Saturday afternoon. There’s little doubt this would’ve played a part, as he has overseen much improvement since his arrival as boss, but with our injury problems so problematic this didn’t help us.

Such were these issues our 55-year-old coach, who hadn’t played in over a decade, Dave Beasant had to be named on the bench as back-up ‘keeper to Chris Day with his son Sam currently among those missing out….

The visitors themselves did have 40-year-old Tony Caig as their sub ‘keeper, so the combined age of the back-up men was some 95-years young!

Carlisle took the lead when Kyle Dempsey set up Brad Potts (17) to beat Day early on.

We could have been level almost instantly but Roarie Deacon wasn’t able to capitalise on a good opportunity that came to him.

Ahead of the half hour mark, and punishing that missed chance, Carlisle made it two-nil when Steven Rigg (28) got on the end of a Potts cross.

The hosts could have added more goals but Dean Wells got in an important last gasp challenge to denying Rigg another goal with Charlie Lee almost slicing into his own net when trying to clear a Danny Grainger cross, fortunately for him this came back off the post!

A rare save was forced from Carlisle ‘keeper Dan Hanford by Andy Bond before Mark Beck (87) rounded off a three-nil win for the home side.
