Football News

Carlisle destroyed injury-ravaged MK Dons 5-0 with a blistering display.

Two goals up at the break through Ian Harte and Matty Robson, the Cumbrians founds acres of space against a rocky Dons back line and added three more goals through Daryll Duffy, Scott Dobie and Joe Anyinsah.

They grabbed a 21st-minute lead against the run of play when Kevan Hurst swung in a corner from the right and central defender Harte headed his 12th goal of the season.

Adam Clayton's speculative effort took a huge deflection into the path of Robson, who slid a shot low across Willy Gueretfor the second.

Duffy, on his home debut on loan from Bristol Rovers, made it 3-0 in the 63rd minute, side-footing home from inside the six-yard box after Paul Thirlwell and Robson had split the defence.

The rampant home side went further in front eight minutes later, Dobie controlling a left-wing cross and bursting between two defenders to lash home from eight yards.

Anyinsah came on as a substitute for Dobie and scored with his first touch in the 74th minute, turning in Peter Murphy's cross.
