Carlisle striker Derek Asamoah scored twice as the Cumbrians beat Barnet in a five-goal thriller.

Tom Miller headed the hosts into an early lead before Asamoah rounded the goalkeeper to double the advantage.

Bira Dembele nodded home for Barnet and Michael Gash headed in a minute later to level things, as four goals were scored in the opening half hour.

Asamoah slotted in Alex McQueen's cross midway through the second half to seal all three points for Keith Curle's men.

Barnet manager Martin Allen told BBC London 94.9:

"I don't think I've ever been involved in such a one-sided, dominant performance.

"We were 2-0 down and should have been about six up, and that was in the first 10 minutes.

"I'm sure if we keep our self-belief, keep practicing doing the right things and keep that high level of intensity that we've got in our game then the points will come our way."
