Skiverton said: "We defended very well, but sometimes you have to look at moments of quality and stand back and applaud them. Clayton has that quality. He gets the ball and sprays it around and for us we knew he would be a danger man."
Skiverton added: "We had a chance in the first half when Dean Bowditch went through and the goalkeeper made a decent save and that seemed to be our only chance. Both teams were a bit cagey. We were in the game for large periods, so I'm not too disappointed.
"Carlisle haven't got to a major final for nothing and they are a really good side at home. We knew it would be a tough place to come."
