Carlisle United 2-1 Oxford United

Derek Asamoah's 89th-minute goal earned Carlisle United victory over Oxford.

The striker's second goal in two games, nudged in after a Kyle Dempsey corner, added to Mark Beck's 73rd-minute header to complete an unlikely comeback.

Oxford had taken the lead just before the break when Danny Hylton slid in his 11th goal of the season after latching on to Danny Rose's through ball.

And they looked like they would hold on to remain four points clear of their hosts only for Asamoah to intervene.
