Carlisle United suffered a loss against newly promoted side Lincoln City over the weekend but impressive star Reggie Lambe was on target yet again.

Lambe netted his third in as many games in the Sky Bet League fixture this campaign. The Cumbrian side suffered their biggest loss this term as they crashed 4-1 away at Sincil Bank.

Lincoln went ahead through Alex Woodyard, who scored a 22-yard screamer. The score line did not change until the break. In the second half, they dominated and got more goals.

Matthew Rhead intercepted a Tom Parkes pass and sent it to Woodyard who scored. Rhead also got on the scorer’s sheet as he converted a penalty awarded to them. The visitors scored what later proved to be just a consolation through Lambe. Billy Knott came off the bench to net the fourth for the hosts with a long range effort.

The Bermuda side finished the game a man down as Parkers earned a second yellow that meant marching orders and a match suspension. Keith Curle believes the team made a good impression despite suffering the heavy loss.

“We created very good opportunities to score goals at influential times but we didn’t make them count. We had one just before half time and one just after that and, it we’d put them away, it could have given us a springboard.”

The loss slows down the momentum of United, following back to back victories against Cambridge United and Cheltenham Town.

The 26-year old Lambe should be pleased at yet another goal. The winger is having a good start to the season. The defeat is not expected to hamper his morale as the team continues to depend on his brilliance on the pitch.
