Carlisle United 2-1 Mansfield Town

Kyle Dempsey
Kyle Dempsey's goal was his sixth of the season for Carlisle

Carlisle staged a second-half comeback to take all three points against fellow strugglers Mansfield.

The Stags snatched the lead in the last minute of the first half when Vadaine Oliver rose highest to head Reggie Lambe's cross in off the post.

Carlisle deservedly equalised in the 72nd minute when home debutant Charlie Wyke slid the ball past Adam Smith.

A quick break then left Mansfield short at the back and Wyke laid the ball off to Kyle Dempsey, who slotted home.
