Canice Carroll nets stunning late winner for Carlisle United

Midfielder caps return in fine style

16 October 2019

Canice Carroll celebrated his return to the Carlisle United starting line-up with the late winner as The Cumbrians beat Blackpool in the Trophy last night.

Playing his first game in three weeks, Canice saw his side fall behind in the 25th-minute, goalkeeper Louis Gray with the unfortunate own-goal. The Cumbrians pulled themselves level on the stroke of half-time through Doug Loft.

With a draw meaning exit from the competition in the group stages, Canice was the Carlisle hero three minutes from time, crashing home a 30-yard rocket to earn Steven Pressley's side all three points and keep qualification hopes in their own hands. 

The Cumbrians return to League Two action on Saturday, facing a monster trip to Plymouth Argyle.
