Carlisle United manager Greg Abbott pays tribute to the club's younger players after 18-year-old duo Mark Beck and David Symington found the net in the League Cup win over Ipswich Town last night.

Carlisle United manager Greg Abbott has paid tribute to the club's younger players after watching them star in the 2-1 win over Ipswich Town last night.

Mark Beck headed a last-minute equaliser for the Cumbrians before fellow 18-year-old David Symington netted the winner nine minutes into extra time.

"Symington has no fear and you expect the unexpected with him," said Abbot. "But he will learn to get more consistent and he's shown that he can come on and make an impact.

"Beck made a significant contribution and David was a real handful with his power and pace and he has unbelievable shooting power.

"With our guts and determination we probably deserved to come out winners. Sometimes the fans have got to be a bit patient. As these youngsters get older they will get more consistency."

The win saw Carlisle reach the third round of the League Cup for the first time since 2009.
