Luke Norris and Paul Mullin scored either side of half-time as Swindon won at Carlisle in League Two.The hosts were slow to find their rhythm as Swindon had the better of the early exchanges, with Norris and James Dunne providing early tests for goalkeeper Jack Bonham.However, Jamie Devitt was unlucky not to give Carlisle a 26th-minute lead with a shot which crashed against the post.

The visitors went in front in the 31st minute when Chris Hussey’s searching free-kick found Norris, who headed home from close range but injured himself in the process.Swindon added to their lead three minutes into the second half when Bonham parried a powerful drive by John Goddard, but could not prevent Mullin from converting the rebound.Carlisle needed to strike back quickly and it was Luke Joyce who netted in the 55th minute, steering a shot inside the upright from the edge of the area.Lawrence Vigouroux’s late save from Nicky Adams enabled Swindon to hold on and provide David Flitcroft with the win in his first competitive game in charge.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsCarlisle1Bonham2MillerSubstituted forBennettat 66’minutes5Liddle6ParkesSubstituted forEllisat 76’minutes3Grainger4Joyce8JonesBooked at 41mins11Devitt19Lambe10Adams9HopeSubstituted forMillerat 76’minutesSubstitutes14Bennett15Cosgrove16Ellis20Miller23George24Salkeld26EganSwindon1Vigouroux2Purkiss6Lancashire25Conroy3Hussey10Goddard16Linganzi8Dunne11BrophySubstituted forIandoloat 60’minutesBooked at 78minsSubstituted forC Thomasat 83’minutes7MullinBooked at 66mins9NorrisSubstituted forSmithat 34’minutesBooked at 90minsSubstitutes4C Thomas5Robertson12Henry14Iandolo15Smith17Smith18TwineReferee:Andy HainesAttendance:6,036Match StatsHome TeamCarlisleAway TeamSwindonPossessionHome58%Away42%ShotsHome14Away12Shots on TargetHome5Away7CornersHome10Away3FoulsHome9Away9Live TextPosted at Match ends, Carlisle United 1, Swindon Town 2.Full TimePosted at 90’+6′ Second Half ends, Carlisle United 1, Swindon Town 2.Posted at 90’+6′ Attempt blocked.
