OLDHAM Athletic were embarrassed by their Boxing Day hosts Carlisle United, who sent them packing after hitting six goals without reply.

Jerry Yates bagged a brace as Frankie Bunn's Latics endured a miserable afternoon at Brunton Park.

Hallam Hope tapped in the opener at the back post and, after Christopher Missilou's cross just evaded Sam Surridge, Yates doubled the Cumbrians' advantage, tapping in after Daniel Iversen parried Jamie Devitt's effort.

Ashley Nadesan struck on the hour with a simple back-post header and Danny Grainger's free-kick made it four.

Yates added a fifth with a cool finish and Gary Liddle completed the rout in stoppage time, bundling in after Hope's cross.
