Brian Laws dedicated United's third home win in succession to the fans- a feat achieved for the first time since March 2009.

"It’s been an incredibly good week for the players.

“But more so for the supporters, it’s been a fantastic achievement all around.

“This week has to be solely dedicated to them, for their suffering – and we’re talking about suffering for a long time.

Akpo Sodje and Paul Reid put the Iron into a commanding 2-0 lead, before a goal on the stroke of half time gave Carlisle hope ahead of the second half.

"I thought beyond the first 10 minutes we took control of the game and thoroughly deserved to go two up - I'm actually disappointed we didn't make it three to kill them off.

"To concede in that last minute throws that doubt in the air. There's no doubt about it, if we'd have gone in there 2-0 up it would have been a lot easier.

"Going to 2-1 put us on the back foot a wee bit but I think the response I had from the players was fantastic; they stepped it up again and started to cause problems."

Laws reserved praise for Sam Slocombe, who made a couple of fantastic saves to deny Carlisle an equaliser.

“Sam Slocombe pulled off a couple of top quality saves to make up for the disappointment of conceding the first goal, so credit to him."
