YOUTH: United 5 - 2 Preston

25 April 2017

Result from the Tuesday youth game

Carlisle bagged five goals in a stunning 30-minute second half spell to claim all three points from their home game against Preston North End on Tuesday afternoon.

The visitors took a one-goal lead into the half time break when Campbell lashed the ball into the back of the net when a shot from Howard bounced back off the bar.

The in-form Luke Lloyd levelled the scores on 61 minutes when he twisted and turned inside the area before stroking it into the bottom corner.

Josh Dixon then nudged a low cross into the waiting net to put his side in front for the first time on the day, and Jack Egan added to his season tally when he glanced a cross past the keeper moments later.

Carlisle tails were up and Josh Dixon slotted his second of the day away when he found space on the penalty spot, before Hall completed the scoring for the Blues with three minutes left to play.

Preston had the last say on the day when Earl swept an excellent free kick into the top corner, but it was job done for the Cumbrians off the back of another very good display.

United - Bacon, Brockbank, Olsen, Watson (Dixon 65), Goldthorpe, Groves, Egan, Holt, Lloyd (Hall 65), Miller, Cowburn (McCarron 84). Subs - Ashton, Hodgson.

Goals - Lloyd (61), Dixon (73, 83), Egan (81), Hall (87)
