The Peskey Bulls produced a defiant defensive display against the Cumbrians but slipped to a 1-0 defeat

Lowly Cables came away empty-handed from their 137-mile journey into the heart of Cumbria on Saturday but were still in the hunt until referee Chris Joyce blew the full-time whistle.

The Peskey Bulls produced a defiant defensive display against the Cumbrians who lie second in the NPL West Division table and were only undone by a 47th minute David Symington spot kick.

The hosts were the better team over the 90 minutes but found it difficult to out-smart the visitors' defence in which outstanding goalkeeper Mitchell Allen pulled off a string of fine saves and stopped a second penalty from Symington.
