Andy Robinson's first ever hat-trick condemned Abbott's men to their heaviest home defeat for over a year.

It was a deflating night for Carlisle, who looked desperately short of penetration without injured striker Lee Miller, and the Blues' manager has suggested he will make changes for their next game.

He said: "Hats off to the goals, but there is more to it than that. I will take my share of it, but these lads have to take responsibility. We need fight and better quality.

"The goals were fantastic, but we surrendered possession and played at a tempo bordering on testimonial match level.


"Nobody can be too upset if they lose their place on Saturday. I just want some fire in their belly and we will react to that."
