Carlisle 3-3 Oldham

Carlisle produced a stunning comeback from three goals down to salvage a point at home to Oldham.

Robbie Simpson was fouled in the area and Shefki Kuqi rolled home the resultant spot-kick before Tom Adeyemi headed home a Simpson free-kick.

Kuqi notched his second with a fearsome drive only for Lee Miller's header to bring the hosts back into it.

Francois Zoko's deft clipped finish reduced arrears further before his backheel in injury time rescued a draw.


Carlisle United manager Greg Abbott tells BBC Radio Cumbria:

"It is one that feels like a win, a bit like Mick McCarthy from Wolves the other week when you come from nowhere to get something out of a game.

"If I am being really cheeky we might have won it in the end with the play we provided and produced second half.

"The displeasing thing is the way we got into the situation, but the pleasing thing is that everybody should realise now the dressing room is in good spirits and good heart."

Oldham Athletic manager Paul Dickov told BBC Radio Manchester:

"We were 3-0 up, looking solid and we lost goals at terrible times.

"It's suicidal to concede the second goal and then we didn't manage the pressure well enough they put on us.

"When teams put a lot of pressure on you, you need 11 men out there and I just felt possibly a few crumbled under the pressure today."
