It was a much-needed win for Carlisle United as they saw off Crawley 2-0 at Brunton Park thanks to goals from Joe Riley and Omari Patrick.

Fans gave us their thoughts on the victory after the game.

It’s a deserved win let’s hope it’s the beginning of the revival, Crawley's performance emphasised again the state of League 2, they remain our go-to side for a win and this was a big one for the head coach (@keithelliott94)

Much improved at last must keep that tempo through remaining games only 6 points off play offs coyb (@davidtgraham70)

Brilliant, a much needed win (@KyleDixon30)

3 points keep them coming (@stansanczuk)

An enjoyable, comfortable and stress-free ifollow evening. (@jackoddie)

A much needed win and hopefully a boost to the whole club. Hugely difficult but not impossible to get into the play offs, I’d settle for winning games and re-gaining some lost momentum. However the next 3 games are definitely winnable and then Newport, so who knows? (@Halpinforpope)

Clean sheet, 3 points, professional performance. Every Carlisle player had a decent game. Big confidence booster, job done. (@RonnieSmith1964)

Crawley were poor but we were good. Needed that. Let's see what they are made of now. Big end to season. Win a couple and we have hope. Lose and we are back to square one. (@scholes_peter)

Can only beat what’s in front of you, hopefully should be the boost we need to get going again. Big game on Saturday, need to build momentum and go on a run similar to before Christmas. In danger of having hope for the rest of the season - dangerous with any CUFC team (@andrewhoddie)

Good win against a poor side. Need to push on now and string a few wins together, make it interesting (@jrichardson1196)

Much more like our old selves. Great performance especially 1st half. A win, clean sheet happy days (@tracy_sturgess)

Decent win against a very poor team. (@northumbrian_)

Much needed win. Solid win against a poor side (@Glass942)

It’s been so long I forgot what it felt like (@canoeblue)

Win at Southend and then we only need one point to stay up! (@cufcman56)

First half was like pre Covid second half was steady away, Zanzala is a proper handful and hopefully he’s still here beyond the summer, back it up on Saturday with another win and I think we might still have a chance of a top 7 finish, much better tonight though (@NavyDave94)

A poor Crawley side but we made them pay! Loved the intensity first half and should have been 3 or 4 up. Well played Joe Riley, great energy! (@JoeBardsley74)

Phew! The intensity & pressing was much better. So good to see the grass used a bit more again & to see width. Side more balanced with Alessandra in it. Funny how seasons can shift - that bounce on the 1st goal might be that stroke of luck needed. Crawley's Nichols was class. (@BackoSkiddaw)

So much better tonight! Great to see us play in a controlled way. We looked bright first half and managed the game in the second. Ozzy, Reilly and Patrick all stand outs! Play like that the last few games & we win more. Must build on this now! (@fish_blues)
