Dulwuch Hamlet 1 Carlisle United 4: Carlisle United safely booked their place in the FA Cup second round with what eventually became a comfortable win at Dulwich Hamlet.

Olufela Olomola and Harry McKirdy scored in the first half against the National League South hosts.

The minnows pulled one back through Christian Smith but a fine Mike Jones goal restored United's two-goal advantage before another McKirdy effort late on.

It sees Carlisle secure £36,000 prize money along with a £75,000 broadcast fee from live BBC television coverage.

They will go into Monday's second round draw having extended an unbeaten run to three games at Champion Hill.

Olomola had calmed early nerves by shooting Carlisle into an eighth-minute lead, the striker volleying home a McKirdy cross from close range after the latter had broken down the left to put United ahead.

And on 37 minutes the Cumbrians emerged from a period of poor play by breaking for a second goal, Gethin Jones driving across from the right and McKirdy flicking it home.

In between, Dulwich had enjoyed the better of general play, winning battles and forcing mistakes out of Carlisle's midfield and defence without carving out many serious chances.

Before the opener Ade Yussuf had a shot deflected wide after Byron Webster dithered on the ball. Christian Smith later put a free-kick over and then Marvin McCoy hit the bar with a shot from the right.

Other aerial balls aimed for big striker Danny Mills gave Carlisle some problems and, after McKirdy's goal, the hosts came back through ex-Blues loanee Jeffrey Monakana, who had a shot deflected wide.

United then survived more corners before the interval, but were hit by a Dulwich goal five minutes after the restart, when Jon Mellish conceded a free-kick on the right and Monakana's delivery was headed home by Smith.

Ben Chapman then whipped a free-kick narrowly wide before the Blues went 3-1 up thanks to Jones' excellent strike.

That took the sting out of the rest of the tie, with Branthwaite, Webster and McKirdy going close and sub Nyren Clunis shooting over as the hosts tried to fight back again.

Finally, sub Mo Sagaf fed McKirdy down the left and the ex-Aston Villa man took it forward well before finishing across keeper Charlie Grainger to make it 4-1.
