Video: Lambe Scores In Loss To Carlisle United

March 1, 2020

Bermuda’s Reggie Lambe scored for Cambridge United as they played to a 1-2 loss against Carlisle United.

The club’s match report said, “Cambridge United’s unbeaten run of five in League Two came to an end as Carlisle United edged out the U’s 1-2 at the Abbey Stadium.

“Reggie Lambe pulled a late goal back for United, but in truth they had left themselves a little too much to do having fallen behind to goals from Lewis Alessandra and Nick Anderton.

“Mark Bonner was forced into an early substitution when Idris El-Mizouni picked up a leg injury inside the first 15 minutes and was replaced by former Carlisle player Reggie Lambe.

“United’s first opening came midway through the half as a result of good endeavour from Lambe, who harried the visitors in midfield to win possession before Carruthers played through a charging Adeboyejo. The striker didn’t quite set his shot wide enough of Adam Collin however, with the keeper grasping it in the middle of the target.

“Callum Burton then made a smart stop four minutes later, watching Harry McKirdy’s effort from 20 yards closely enough to palm it over the top.

“However, he was helpless to stop Lewis Alessandra breaking the deadlock from the resulting corner after a scrappy delivery bounced around the box before being fired in from eight yards out by the striker.

“However another set piece undid the U’s when a long free kick forward was headed back across goal by Aaron Hayden, and whilst Burton was able to save the first effort, Nick Anderton buried the follow up to double the visitor’s advantage on 71 minutes.

“Just as the U’s looked to be dead and buried in the contest, Reggie Lambe produced a moment out of nowhere when he drilled in a half volley from 18 yards that pulled a goal back.

“But despite a couple of dangerous deliveries in from Jack Roles and a fierce effort by Carruthers which Collin palmed over, the visitors held out.”
