    Role player: Reggie Lambe had a hand in two Carlisle goals

Reggie Lambe played a key role in two of Carlisle United’s goals as the Sky Bet League Two club progressed to the third round of the Emirates FA Cup yesterday by beating Gillingham 3-1 at Brunton Park.

Bermuda forward Lambe was on the pitch for all 90 minutes as Hallam Hope scored twice in the first half before Shaun Miller calmed their nerves with a third in injury time in the second-round replay. The victory seals a home tie against Sheffield Wednesday, the Championship side and three-times FA Cup winners, on January 6.

Carlisle took the lead in the seventh minute when Richie Bennett found forward Hope, whose deflected shot beat Tomas Holy, Gillingham’s Czech goalkeeper.

The home side doubled their lead half an hour later after Lambe wriggled his way through a challenge from two defenders. The Bermudian played Bennett in to cross for Hope, who finished from close range.

Scott Wagstaff set Cumbrian nerves jangling when he scored for Gillingham two minutes after half-time, but Lambe helped seal the victory in the fourth minute of stoppage time.

Lambe broke and fed Bennett, whose shot was saved by Holy, only for substitute Miller to fire in the rebound.

Carlisle next face Forest Green Rovers away on Saturday in the league with an 11am kick-off, Bermuda time.
