Oxford United 2-1 Carlisle United

Kyle Vassell
Kyle Vassell joined Oxford on loan from Peterborough two days before the game against Carlisle.

Substitute Kyle Vassell's strike on debut helped Oxford move clear of the League Two relegation zone as they came from behind to beat 10-man Carlisle.

The visitors took the lead when U's keeper Ryan Clare misjudged Paul Corry's 35-yard free-kick, before Patrick Hoban headed home an equaliser.

The Cumbrians then had defender Troy Archibald-Henville sent off for two yellow cards in two minutes.

And Vassell fired home the winner five minutes after coming on.
