Teenage striker Mark Beck won his manager Greg Abbott's plaudits after Carlisle secured a timely 2-0 home win over promotion-hopefuls Yeovil.

Yeovil came up against a resolute Carlisle defence and the Cumbrians took a big step towards safety with a first-half header from Sean O'Hanlon and a second strike after the break by Beck, his sixth goal of the season.

It was a first win in seven games for Carlisle, which had a lot to thank central defensive pairing O'Hanlon and Danny Livesey for an uncompromising display at the back.

But it was 18-year-old striker Beck who came in for warm praise from Carlisle manager Greg Abbott.

Beck led the line due to the three-match suspension incurred by Lee Miller last week.

Abbott said: "Trotta and Wright-Phillips destroyed us last time we played Brentford, but Beck outshone both of them.

"No-one has probably heard about Mark Beck, but they will have heard about him after this.

"This is probably the best result since I became manager of this club.

"It's the proudest I've been. We have a group of players performing well above their station at the moment.

"We are coming out of a tough situation. No-one shirked anything and there was effort and determination."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
