Carlisle are on the verge of being relegated after slumping to a two-goal half-time deficit to Wolves at Molineux.

Carlisle United are on the verge of being relegated from League One after slumping to a two-goal half-time deficit to Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux today.

United went into the final game of the season knowing that their demotion to League Two was all but sealed, before first-half goals from Sam Ricketts and Michael Jacobs ensured that the visitors need a second-half miracle to preserve their status in England's third tier.

The skipper fired the hosts ahead after just five minutes by cutting inside his marker before unleashing a left-footed drive past goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

On 24 minutes, Kenny Jackett's men plunged Carlisle's survival bid into further doubt as Jacobs headed home a Scott Golbourne cross to bag his eighth of the season as 100-point Wolves look on course to register a League One record for most points in a season.
