Jack Bonham helped Carlisle United to a third straight win in all competitions on Boxing Day after a 3-1 win over Accrington Stanley at Brunton Park. Jamie Devitt gave the home side an early lead but Jack was beaten by a Billy Kee penalty just after the break. However, Keith Curle’s side struck twice in the final 12 minutes to close the gap on the Sky Bet League Two Play-Off places to four points. Jack has now made 24 appearances for The Cumbrians, 20 of them in the league, keeping six clean sheets.
Neither Tom Field nor Zain Westbrooke saw action for their respective clubs on Boxing Day. Tom was not involved in the matchday 18 as Bradford City were beaten 3-1 on the road at Peterborough United while Zain also missed out on Leyton Orient’s 2-0 win over Dagenham and Redbridge in the Vanarama National League.
