Pierce Sweeney’s header was enough for Exeter to see off Carlisle and move back to the top of the League Two table.A header just after half-time by defender Sweeney added to Carlisle’s miserable home form.Carlisle skipper Danny Grainger was inches away from finding the target with an early effort, but it was Exeter who carried the main threat with Jayden Stockley’s overhead flick hitting a post and Reuben Reid forcing a fingertip save from Jack Bonham with a rasping drive from the edge of the area.

Carlisle’s first-half build-up play was neat enough without directly troubling Christy Pym in the Grecians’ goal, although Hallam Hope was a fraction away from making contact with a driven Shaun Miller cross inside the six-yard box.Exeter went in front in the 49th minute when Sweeney forced a corner on the right and was on hand to nod home from a couple of yards when the resulting kick came to him after Troy Brown’s flick had left Bonham flat-footed.The goal sparked a response from the home side and after Pym had clawed away a Luke Joyce shot at the near post, Dean Moxey came to the Grecians’ rescue with a goal-line clearance from a Miller header.Pym saved at point-blank range from Clint Hill, and although Nicky Adams fired in a barrage of crosses from the left, City’s defence held firm.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsCarlisle1Bonham17BrownSubstituted forDevittat 58’minutes5Liddle29HillBooked at 19mins3Grainger21EtuhuSubstituted forLambeat 66’minutes8JonesSubstituted forKennedyat 76’minutes4Joyce10Adams9Hope20MillerSubstitutes2Miller7Kennedy11Devitt12Nabi15Cosgrove19Lambe23GeorgeExeter1Pym2Sweeney23CrollSubstituted forMoxeyat 37’minutes39Brown3Woodman25Taylor4James44BoatengSubstituted forMcAlindenat 90+3’minutes10Holmes33ReidSubstituted forTillsonat 71’minutes11StockleySubstitutes5Archibald-Henville6Tillson13Hamon19McAlinden20Jay21Moxey28EdwardsReferee:Eddie IldertonAttendance:4,677Match StatsHome TeamCarlisleAway TeamExeterPossessionHome48%Away52%ShotsHome15Away11Shots on TargetHome3Away6CornersHome8Away7FoulsHome9Away7Live TextPosted at Match ends, Carlisle United 0, Exeter City 1.Full TimePosted at 90’+6′ Second Half ends, Carlisle United 0, Exeter City 1.SubstitutionPosted at 90’+3′ Substitution, Exeter City.
