The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

CARLISLE were with­out top scorer Jabo Ib­here and strug­gled to make an im­pact in the ab­sence of their star man.

Keith Curle’s side lacked a cut­ting edge as they made a round trip of nearly 200 miles to Black­burn for a home match. But with games in hand over the other teams vy­ing for pro­mo­tion, they are still very much in con­tention for a place in League One next sea­son when back to full strength.

Plymouth’s pro­mo­tion push con­tin­ues af­ter their fourth win on the trot in the busy fes­tive pe­riod. They were de­fen­sively solid and had pace on the break to cause prob­lems, even af­ter top scorer Jake Jervis went off in­jured.

If the Devon side stay in­jury free and man­age to keep their loan sign­ings, head­ing into League One as cham­pi­ons is a real pos­si­bil­ity.
