Cheltenham maintained their fine home form with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Carlisle.
First-half goals from Gavin Reilly and Luke Varney were enough to extend the Robins’ unbeaten record at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium to 12 games.
Frontman Reilly scored the first of his loan spell from Bristol Rovers in the 15th minute, nodding in Jake Doyle-Hayes’ cross after a clever corner routine.
Charlie Raglan’s header then rebounded off the post for Cheltenham, who were on top throughout the opening period.
They deservedly doubled their lead in the 45th minute when Chris Clements’ fine ball into the box was latched on to by Varney, who finished past Adam Collin for his opening strike of the season.
Cheltenham had the ball in the net early in the second half, but Reilly’s effort after a Josh Debayo cross was disallowed for a foul on the goalkeeper.
Carlisle nearly pulled one back in the 55th minute, but Harry McKirdy’s effort was well saved by Scott Flinders.
Ryan Broom had a chance to make it 3-0 in the 85th minute but his effort was just wide.
