Morecambe 1-2 Carlisle United

Derek Asamoah
Derek Asamoah scored within four minutes of coming on

Carlisle United scored twice in two second-half minutes to earn a late fightback victory over Morecambe.

Morecambe hit the woodwork twice early on through Ryan Edwards' looping header and Kevin Ellison's follow-up shot, before Ellison ran through to score.

But in a second half delayed by a fire alarm, which also caused some fans to be evacuated, the visitors won the points in dramatic fashion.

Charlie Wyke netted from the penalty spot and Derek Asamoah hit the winner.

Wyke's spot-kick was awarded after substitute Aaron McGowan was adjudged to have pulled back Wyke.

And while Morecambe were still recovering, Wyke teed up substitute Asamoah who netted from close range.
