Mansfield too strong for Carlisle

Mansfield ended their four-game goal drought with a 2-0 win over Carlisle.

Matt Green scored the opening goal in the 63rd minute and Shaq Coulthirst sealed the points after 76 minutes.

Coulthirst forced a couple of early saves from Mark Gillespie in the Carlisle goal before Danny Rose had a goal ruled out for offside in the 35th minute.

Shaun Miller and Jamie Proctor both went close for Carlisle, while Gillespie blocked a powerful Coulthirst shot and Rose missed the target with the follow-up.

Green gave his side the lead when he cushioned home a perfect eight-yard header from Coulthirst's left-wing cross.

Coulthirst made the game safe when he arrowed a powerful low finish across the goalkeeper and inside the far post.
