Carlisle United hammered Crewe Alexandra on their own turf with a 5-0 victory this afternoon.

The Blues were impressive and clinical at Gresty Road today and Crewe had no answer to stop them in the second half.

Skipper Danny Grainger scored the opening two goals, one via the penalty spot just minutes into the second half.

There were more goals coming in a busy second period from Reggie Lambe and substitute Hallam Hope.

The scoring was completed by an own goal from the former Carlisle defender Michael Raynes.
