Accrington Stanley 1-1 Carlisle United

Accrington and Carlisle were forced to settle for a point in a match where both teams finished with 10 men.

Carlisle had Jabo Ibehre sent off in the first minute for a high challenge on Matty Pearson but took the lead when Hallam Hope scored from an acute angle.

The hosts then had left-back Adam Buxton dismissed for his second yellow card but managed to force an equaliser.

Substitute Terry Gornell headed in from close range at Sean McConville's corner to move Stanley up to fourth.
