Lambe Scores Again in Carlisle United Win

IslandStats.com
Reggie Lambe and his Carlisle united teammates cruised to a comfortable 3-0 win over Cheltenham to register their first home win of the League Two campaign.

Harry Pell's own goal and a Lambe header in the first half virtually settled the issue and defender Tom Miller put the outcome beyond doubt with a second half strike.

Carlisle's first attack produced a fifth minute goal as Shaun Miller forced a corner and Danny Grainger's inswinger from the right had the Cheltenham defence at sixes and sevens. In the ensuing scramble Pell's attempted clearance flew past his own goalkeeper Jon Flatt and into the net.

The home team were on target again in the 17th minute when Grainger's cross from wide on the left picked out Lambe, who directed a stooping header into the bottom corner.

Carlisle made the most of the conditions in the first half, with a gusting wind at their backs, and Miller and Richie Bennett both were inches away from scoring although Pell almost made amends in a Robins break, forcing Jack Bonham to dive full length to save a fizzing low drive.

Carlisle continued to press after the break and made it 3-0 in the 60th minute when Cheltenham failed to clear a Nicky Adams free-kick and Miller seized on Tom Parkes' pass on the edge of the area to curl a shot into the top right hand corner.

Hull City Approach Huddersfield For Wells

IslandStats.com
According to a report by The Daily Mail, Huddersfield Town have been approached by English League Championship team Hull City regarding Nahki Wells.

Hull City and Wolverhampton Wanderers are both reportedly interested in Huddersfield striker Wells.

Wells was a key part of the Huddersfield Town team that won promotion last term, as he played 47 games in all competitions, scoring ten goals.

However, Huddersfield Town have signed Laurent Depoitre and Steve Mounie this summer and Wells appears to have dropped down the pecking order at the John Smith’s Stadium.

The 9-cap Bermuda international could now be set for the exit door this summer.

Hull City have made an initial approach over the possibility of signing the diminutive 5ft 7in striker.

The Tigers recently lost key striker Abel Hernandez for around six months with an Achilles injury and this is a crucial blow.

After the Uruguayan international netted a hat trick against Burton Albion, many Hull fans were holding high hopes that he would replicate his form of the 2015/16 season, where he netted 20 league goals.

However, he has been consigned to the injury room for a while and Hull are instead looking at Wells.

They face competition from Wolves, though, who will be looking to add to their current options of Leo Bonatini, Bright Enobakhare and Nouha Dicko.

Wells provides something different from your conventional center forward.

The 27-year-old is not great in the air due to his small frame but he is a finisher, he is nippy and he can tenacious when he puts his mind to it.

However, Reading have previously been linked with a £10m swoop and this is a steep price for a striker who is only likely to get around the ten goal mark.

Butterfield & Leamington Fall to Kidderminster

IslandStats.com
A battling hard working display yielded nothing for Milan Butterfield and his Leamington teammates as they went down to a third successive National League North defeat in Worcestershire against Kidderminster Harriers.

With Butterfield starting the match on the bench Leamington were certainly not overawed in the opening stages however, and the ball deflected off Jamie Hood and wide from Joe Magunda’s blocked shot following the first corner of the game. This was swiftly followed by Ahmed Obeng driving at the Harriers defense from the right, his shot also blocked away from goal.

The home side had their best chance of the half when another slick passing move saw Joe Ironside play in Emmanuel Sonupe, who attempted to clip the ball over Tony Breeden, the former Harriers stopper getting something on it to concede a corner.

Ironside almost bundled the ball home in the last attacking move of the half, but was denied by a fine piece of improvisation from Jamie Hood as he almost nonchalantly flicked out a heel to clear the danger.

Breeden watched an early second half effort from Elton Ngwatala sail past the post, but there was more of the patient build up play from the hosts, with Leamington doing their utmost to stand firm and frustrate. Harriers continued to up the ante however as they tried to pass their way through, with Leamington barely able to get out of their own half in the opening ten minutes of the restart.

The pressure told with 64 minutes played as substitute Butterfield was rather harshly penalized for sticking a boot out to challenge Sonupe, who certainly made the most of it. Ironside stepped up to send Breeden the wrong way from the penalty spot.

Leamington began to come out of their shell a little now with the game beginning to slip away from them, and Hall was forced into his first action of the half when he punched away a corner from the left.

Kidderminster then sealed the game in stoppage time with a superb goal from Sonupe. With Breeden racing back having pushed up for a corner. Picking the ball up just yards inside the Leamington half, the diminutive midfielder looked up and curled a delightful effort into the far corner of the net from fully 40 yards.
