Brown grabbed the headlines with a stunning strike for his first Barclays Premiership goal of the season to secure our fifth straight league win.
Meanwhile, Carrick was pivotal to a second half revival after the home side had created and missed all the chances - two hit the woodwork, two off the line - as we took over from about the hour mark.
Our goals arrived after 72 and 76 minutes with Browny's 25-yarder capping another all-action display.
"I'm very happy for him," said Head Coach Martin. "I saw from the first day he was a terrific character. He likes to play football and always gives 100 per cent effort.
"I told him before the game that he'd created three goals for us but hadn't scored so maybe he could have a couple of shots. He did that and scored so I was very pleased for him."
Asked about Carrick's display, Martin added: "You saw the second half and I told the lads we had to keep the ball because if we gave it away we had to chase them and we didn't want that. He then took control of the game, left foot, right foot.
"It's not a surprise to you because you knew him from West Ham - I didn't know him, but he's a terrific player."
