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."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
