Carlisle crashed to their first defeat of the season away to Plymouth Argyle.

All of Plymouth's strikes came within a 22 minute spell that badly exposed a defence that has now conceded ten goals in the last four outings.

Plymouth's first goal came just before the half, as Jake Jervis shot a cannonball straight past Mark Gillespie.

United's fears were realised right after the break, as Argyle's Reid and Carey stole a goal each in quick succession.

It wasn't long before former Carlisle loanee Jervis was back on the scoreboard again as he snuck into the box unmarked and finished clinically.

By the time Joe Thompson had secured a late consolation goal, it was too little too late as Carlisle's unbeaten run and goal difference took a hammering.
