The Blues trailed 1-0 at half-time to a Bradley Smart goal nine minutes before the break, nefore Dylan Glass netted a second half hat-trick.

Glass scored twice in 10 minutes after the restart, before adding a third a minute from time.

Nelson netted a last-minute consolation through Daniel Russell, but, ahead of tomorrow’s trip to second place Carlisle City’s Don Marks Carpets Stadium, Harrison said: “We’re just looking for a reaction from everyone.

“Saturday was unacceptable on every level.

“But we’ve trained well this week and are hungry to bounce back.

“It will be a big test, but one which I’m looking forward to.

“And we get a chance to put Saturday right on Tuesday night.”
