A total of 4,563 fans were at Brunton Park to watch Carlisle United claim a sixth straight win, beating 10-man Mansfield 3-2.

Tommy Wright and Paul Murray were in caretaker charge of the Blues on Saturday after John Sheridan's resignation a day earlier.

United led 2-0 at half-time through goals from Jack Sowerby and Hallam Hope.

In the second period, Matt Preston gave the Stags, reduced to 10 men after Neal Bishop's half-time red card, hope, only for Hope to score his second to almost instantly restore the Cumbrians' two-goal lead.

Mansfield's top-scorer Tyler Walker again cut the deficit to one goal, but the Cumbrians held on - and are now on their best run since 2008 when John Ward was manager, having taken maximum points from their last six fixtures.
