    Sunderland 5 Carlisle United 3: Carlisle United are out of the EFL Trophy after a high-scoring defeat at Sunderland which also brought the Blues a fresh injury blow.

    Ethan Walker went off in the first half with a shoulder problem after being hurt after a challenge.

    Carlisle took the lead at the Stadium of Light and then staged a late fightback via two-goal Jon Mellish, but the hosts – for whom ex-United man Charlie Wyke was among the scorers – were too strong.

    Frontman Lewis Alessandra gave Carlisle a sixth-minute lead when he fired past Remi Matthews from the spot, after the home keeper had upended the lively Walker who had been fed by Danny Devine.

    But the Black Cats equalised on 26 minutes when Chris Maguire saw a free-kick from the right deflect past wrongfooted debutant Magnus Norman.

    That came moments after Walker had gone down injured after a challenge by Luke O’Nien, the loan man having to be replaced by Mellish.

    And United then fell behind in the 37th minute when Denver Hume was released to shoot past Norman after good work from Max Power and Maguire.

    Carlisle, with Taylor Charters, new boy Connor Malley and Jack Armer all making their first starts among seven changes, went further behind on 55 minutes when Maguire latched onto a Wyke flick to beat keeper Norman.

    Maguire almost grabbed his hat-trick but then Norman failed to hold his 69th-minute shot, allowing Wyke to score from close range.

    Mellish, though, quickly reduced the arrears to 4-2 when he fired home a Riley corner at the near post.

    The midfielder then scored his third goal in two games when he rifled an impressive shot past Matthews after good work from Alessandra.

    United, with teenager Lewis Bell also on for his debut in the second half, applied further pressure but could not complete a dramatic fightback and Jack Diamond then smashed a Sunderland fifth in added time.

    Ex-Blues striker Danny Graham was also involved in the closing stages as a replacement for Wyke.
