The honeymoon period for Graham Kavanagh is still in place, and long may this continue!
It goes without saying that defeat will be felt one day, but the longer this can be avoided the better and another defeat was avoided on Tuesday night when Carlisle secured a place in the next round of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy after a penalty shootout win over Morecambe.
The game ended 0-0 with us winning the penalty shootout to extend that unbeaten run to five under Kavanagh.
Momentum is often spoken about, but building this up is so important and this is something we're doing and the boss knows the importance of this and the shootout win leaves us in with a chance of another extended run in the JPT.
Kavanagh said: 'It was the win we were after because it extended our unbeaten run to five games and that was really important.
'I have been taking my Pro Licence this week and we have been talking about the importance of momentum in football and that is what we have been getting here over the past few weeks.
'The lads showed great composure because there is pressure in any penalty shoot-out and we handled it really well. It is important that the club enjoys a good cup run not just for the finances but to keep our run going and we achieved that and I'm delighted for everyone.'
Nerves are needed, and confidence too, when it comes to a penalty shootout and Matty Robson, Sean O'Hanlon and James Berrett all kept there's when they converted to react to those converted by Padraig Amond, Andy Wright and Robbie Threlfall before them.
Once Ryan Williams put his effort over this gave Liam Noble the chance to give us the advantage, and this was taken. Andy Fleming's miss wrapped up the 4-3 shootout win.
We can now look forward to the draw for the next round this weekend, which is also a weekend we have free due to the Wolverhampton Wanderers postponement.
