Carlisle United 1-1 Morecambe

A late missed penalty cost Morecambe the chance to claim all three points at Carlisle.

Kelvin Etuhu gave Carlisle the lead shortly after half time before Steven OId popped up in the box to equalise for the Shrimps.

But Adam Campbell then hit the bar with his spot kick six minutes from time.

Although Carlisle forced the early pace it was Morecambe who almost took the lead in the 16th minute when Kevin Ellison sent Aaron Wildig through only for Carlisle goalkeeper Jack Bonham to spread himself.

The Shrimp again went close when neat passing between Campbell and Wildig set up Adam McGurk for a shot which flew into the side netting.

Carlisle needed a spark to ignite their performance and Etuhu provided it in the 51st minute when he latched on to a ball on the edge of the area and fired low past Roche giving the ex-Bury midfielder his first goal for the Cumbrians.

Morecambe levelled in the 72nd minute when Old forced the ball home from close range after Wildig's cross from the left had resulted in a bout of pinball in front of the Carlisle goal.

The visitors were then awarded their penalty when Bonham rushed out to try to claim at his near post. However, Campbell slammed the spot kick against the bar and it rebounded clear.
