Highlights of the Sky Bet League Two match between Carlisle and Stevenage

First-half goals from Nick Anderton, Joshua Kayode and Lewis Alessandra put the Cumbrians in control after just 34 minutes.

Joe Riley scored a fourth goal for the rampant hosts in the 73rd minute.

And when Stevenage were reduced to 10 men one minute later, the result was never in doubt.

Luke Prosser was sent off for a silly second yellow card as the visitors’ afternoon when from bad to worse.
