Carlisle United will not appeal against the four match ban handed out to defender Troy Archibald-Henville at the weekend.

He was sent off after an injury time incident in their 1-0 victory against Dagenham and Redbridge.

As it's his second red card of the season, he has been banned for four matches and will play no further part in Carlisle's relegation battle at the bottom of League Two.

The club had considered appealing but said the footage of the incident was "too inconclusive."

The man who scored the winner, on loan midfielder told reporters it was the most important goal of his career.

"I would say it was the most important, yeah. Relegation would be the worst thing you could get on your CV. So, that goal is as massive for me, the club, the fans everyone involved with Carlisle."
