Steven Benda – 8

An excellent first half save and made several strong punches/catches throughout the game. Nearly, literally, dropped a point in injury time.

Paul Caddis – 7

Wasn’t caught out on his side of the wing, a sign of his class and experience in tricky conditions. Just couldn’t get on the end of some long balls forward.

Rarmani Edmonds-Green – 8

Deserved a goal after going close in previous games. Almost grabbed an assist too. Defended soundly, a strong loan addition to Town’s squad.

Zeki Fryers – 5

Snatched at a few relatively simple passes and often gifted Carlisle possession from attempted clearances. Will enjoy better games.

Rob Hunt – 7

Another solid display by one of Wellens’ most reliable players this season. Can’t pick a moment where he was bullied by any United player.

Anthony Grant – 7.5

Not immune to the occasional error, particularly early on. But again won possession through determination so often to halt United’s attacking moves.

Michael Doughty – 6.5

Played the defensive game well, but that usual creative flair up front just lacked from his game – perhaps because of the wind.

Diallang Jaiyesimi – 7.5

A number of fantastic individual plays, almost showboating at times. Another classy performance that lacked an assist.

Hallam Hope – 6

Tried hard against his former club, but perhaps a victim of those efforts. Subbed midway through the second half.

Jerry Yates – 7

Was a threat on the left wing and linked up well with Jaiyesimi at times to help Town pierce the hosts’ defensive line. Short on chances, though.

Eoin Doyle – 6.5

Was shut out of the game well by United’s sound defence. Few goalscoring chances, though those he did strike were on target but often blocked.


Admiral Muskwe (for Hallam Hope, 65) – 7

Was a handful for Carlisle to deal with, easy to see the talent Wellens has spotted. Could’ve grabbed a goal too.

Lloyd Isgrove (for Diallang Jaiyesimi, 90) – N/R

Kaiyne Woolery (for Eoin Doyle, 90) – N.R
