Carlisle United extended their unbeaten run to 12 games on Matchday 12 in Sky Bet League Two, as the top three in the division all won.

The Cumbrians’ fifth victory of the season came at Morecambe by a 3-0 scoreline and left them third, behind Doncaster Rovers and leaders Plymouth.

The second-placed Rovers beat Barnet 3-2, while Argyle’s third victory on the spin came at Stevenage.

It was derby day delight for Mansfield Town, who saw off rivals Notts County 3-1, largely thanks to a Matt Green double.
