Jack Robinson blasted over the crossbar with Carlisle’s best chance before the break.

Jordan Wright produced a good save to tip a Jon Mellish header over at the start of the second half.

Luton loanee Taylor scored his 21st goal of the campaign as House turned provider for the striker to double his side’s advantage in the 56th minute.

Sam Lavelle pulled one back with 10 minutes to go as he poked home from Sean Maguire’s knock down.

Paudie O’Connor’s flick hit a post for the visitors before Teddy Bishop sealed the points with a stunning strike in the third minute of stoppage time.
