The Reds gifted Carlisle their first goal with a sloppy backpass that gave Harry McKirdy the chance to slip the ball beyond Brad Collins and break the deadlock. [via BarnsleyFC.co.uk]
Two goals in five second half minutes then sealed victory for the Cumbrian visitors, with Jack Bridge’s penalty and a Nathan Thomas strike inflicting further damage on Barnsley. [via BarnsleyFC.co.uk]
It could have been a different story had Cauley Woodrow’s header at 0-2 found the net rather than the upright, although Carlisle had a couple of chances late on to further extend their lead. [via BarnsleyFC.co.uk]
The Reds had not lost at home in Daniel Stendel’s 14 months in charge at Oakwell until last night, when the League Two side ended a winless away record that stretched back to January. [via BBC]
