Harte: Sealed the win

Harte: Sealed the win

Carlisle bagged three second-half goals to record their first home win of the season as they beat a lacklustre Tranmere 3-0 at Brunton Park.

Goals from Joe Anyinsah, Danny Livesey and Ian Harte ensured a comfortable win for the Cumbrians and with more ruthless finishing it could have been a lot more.

Carlisle were rarely troubled by the visiting attack and Tranmere's cause was not helped after defender Shaleum Logan received his marching orders in the first half for a second yellow card in the space of 30 seconds, both for fouls on Matty Robson.

Harte was Carlisle's danger man, forcing an early fumble from keeper Luke Daniels with a shot from 35 yards.

Dominant

The former Leeds man went even closer in the 42nd minute with a 30-yard free-kick which bounced off the crossbar with Daniels well beaten.

Carlisle were totally dominant after half-time and only dogged defending and some fine saves from Daniels kept Tranmere level until the 59th minute when Robson sneaked in behind the defence to cross for Anyinsah.

United doubled their lead in the 68th minute when skipper Livesey got on the end of Kevan Hurst's curling cross to head home from the tightest of angles.

And the third followed in the 77th minute when Harte crashed home a near-post header from Robson's corner.
