'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Kavanagh Extremely Proud And Extremely Pleased

Carlisle don't win too many away from Brunton Park, they've not won too many full stop of late, but another victory in midweek has helped ease league one relegation fears.

The Cumbrians had to come from behind but they did this to secure a 2-1 win over Coventry City at Sixfields on Tuesday night.

Victory allowed Carlisle to move six-points clear of the relegation zone and Graham Kavanagh couldn't hide his delight.

The Carlisle boss said: 'I am extremely proud and extremely pleased with the players.

'On the whole, the performance, the energy and the work-rate was excellent and I'm really pleased.

'I have to pay big tribute to the players.'

Franck Moussa had put Coventry ahead in the first half but second half goals from Liam Noble and Sam Byrne, not long after coming on, saw Carlisle come from behind to pick up the point.

Kavanagh admitted that he 'had a bit of a go' at his side at half time and this brought a second half response that he wanted.

He added: 'I had a bit of a go at them at half-time because they respected Coventry too much.

'I asked them to step on 10 yards in the second half and we managed to get our full-backs on the ball and that was a real feature of our play.

'It was a very organised rigid defensive display and it was a really good all-round performance. Back-to-back victories now will give us confidence.

'You don't usually get a win coming away from home when you lose the first goal, but we have here and that is down to the players.'
