Carlisle United 2-0 Tranmere Rovers

Frank Simek and Mike Grella both started and went the distance in Carlisle United's win over Tranmere Rovers.

This was the Cumbrians' first win in four games.

Things though started eerily similar to the way things ended in Carlisle's last game. Francois Zoko was taken down in the box but Gary Madine again missed his penalty, as he did in the final minutes in their weekend against Bristol.

In the 42nd minute the Cumbrians found the back of the net when James Berrett finished a clever pass by Francois Zoko.

Early in the second half, Berrett sent a cross that found James Murphy who headed the insurance goal for the Cumbrians.

Carlisle's Murphy and Ben Marshall were both booked while Ian Goodison and Timothy Cathalina received yellow cards for Tranmere.

The Cumbrians next play Tipton Town in FA cup play this weekend. Tranmere play AFC Bournemouth in the same competition.

Milton Keynes Dons 3-2 Yeovil Town

Jemal Johnson found the back of the net as MK Dons took down Yeovil Town in League One midweek action.

Yeovil got on the scoreboard first in the 19th minute when Dean Bowditch scored off a defensive miscue by MK Dons.

Dons' Dean Lewington equalized after he headed home a Peter Leven corner in the 36th minute.

Early in the second half Johnson shot high passed Yeovil's goalie John Sullivan, giving MK Dons the temporary lead.

Adam Virgo tied the game in the 75th minute when he pounced on a loose ball in the box.

With three minutes left in the game, Luke Chadwick was taken down in the box and awarded a penalty. Peter Leven made no mistake and slotted the ball home passed Sullivan, giving Dons the game winner.

Luke Chadwick and Peter Leven recived yellow cards for MK Dons while Gavin Williams and Paul Huntington were booked for Yeovil Town.

Dons take on Stevenage this weekend in FA cup play while Yeovil play Rushdon & Diamonds in a Cup clash as well.
