Video: Reggie Lambe Scores In Carlisle Victory

November 27, 2016

Bermuda’s Reggie Lambe scored for Carlisle United as they recorded a 5-2 win over Mansfield to move to the top of Sky Bet League Two.

The club’s match report said, “Carlisle had to do it the hard way as they battled through the morning to beat overnight frost – and they then battled back from behind during the game to go top of a division for the first time since August 2010.

“Mansfield started well and they earned a free kick in a dangerous area when Hoban was dumped on his backside. Mitchell Rose struck it firmly but it hit the wall and went behind for a corner.

“Rose trotted across to take it and his delivery invited Hoban to head. Gillespie tried to stop it on the line but it squirmed under his boot and into the back of the net.

“Carlisle worked hard to get themselves back into the game but a deep free kick from Adams curled frustratingly over everybody and into Shearer’s hands. Lambe then went on a run but his cross was cut out before Kennedy could pounce.

“A foul on Adams 28-yards out brought Grainger forward and his drilled free kick was tipped past the upright by Shearer. Grainger and Adams followed up with a short corner routine and the delivery from the latter was flicked into the bottom corner for goal number nine of the season from Jason Kennedy.

“It was a warning shot across the bows as Adams came again with a winding run on the left flank. He bent inside and crossed it at the penalty spot and Charlie Wyke did the rest as he climbed back to the top of the club goalscoring charts with a dipping header.

“McGuire rifled a long range shot wide as the Stags tried to find some purchase in the second half, but Carlisle opened a gap when Grainger whipped a fantastic cross into the penalty box. Charlie Wyke set himself and guided his eleventh goal in just nine games past a despairing dive from Shearer.

“Game management came into play as United dictated things and Wyke made it a hat-trick when Danny Grainger waived his penalty taking rights when the ball was handled inside the box. The centre forward made no mistake as he smashed it low and hard into the net.

“Substitute Danny Rose made the scoreline more respectable when he prodded a loose ball home, and keeper Mark Gillespie produced a world class save to divert a goal bound effort wide deep into time added on.

“Carlisle brushed the scare off and it was another ruthless victory courtesy of some excellent finishing – capped off when Reggie Lambe swept a McKee cut back into the net via a wicked deflection deep into time added on.”
