Carlisle United 0-1 Yeovil Town

Yeovil ended their Brunton Park hoodoo with a dramatic win against a Carlisle side that once again failed to score in front of their own fans.

After losing all five previous visits to the Cumbrians' home, Tom James snatched victory for Yeovil in the fifth minute of added time with a firmly-struck free-kick from the left of the area.

Clear-cut chances were at a premium and Carlisle lost for the fifth consecutive home game.

Macaulay Gillesphey provided an early test for Glovers goalkeeper Nathan Baxter with a thumping 30-yard left-foot shot that was tipped over at full-stretch.

But it was Rhys Browne who almost gave Yeovil the lead when he broke away leaving two defenders in his wake, only to loft a shot over the top.

Adam Collin came to the home side's rescue with a fine fingertip save just when Alex Fisher must have thought he had floated his shot over the goalkeeper's head and into the far corner.

Carlisle started the second half with greater urgency and Collin's opposite number Baxter saved brilliantly from Ashley Nadesan's well-placed shot after the in-form striker had burst menacingly into the area.

Yeovil posed a threat on the counter-attack and after substitute Jake Gray had hammered a shot straight at Collin, the next move saw Browne running at the defence but pulling his effort across the face of goal and just wide of the left-hand post.

James skimmed the crossbar with a late header before having the final word with his free-kick goal.
