Carlisle United 2-3 Morecambe

Shaun Miller
Shaun Miller joined Morecambe from Coventry City in August

Shaun Miller's brace helped Morecambe to a deserved League Two victory at Carlisle United.

Carlisle captain Danny Grainger put the hosts ahead with a curling 18-yard effort, but Miller equalised with a 20-yard drive.

Morecambe's leading scorer Tom Barkhuizen raced away to slot his sixth of the season and give them the lead.

Miller made it 3-1 with a close-range finish before Derek Asamoah lashed home a late consolation for Carlisle.
