Carlisle United have secured a thrilling 3-2 home win against League Two's bottom side, Yeovil Town.
The Blues had a shocking start, going two nil down in the first ten minutes thanks to Ryan Bird's header, and Harry Cornick's low shot.
But they showed the character to pull an all-important goal back before half-time, defender Michael Raynes heading in.
After the break Carlisle were resurgent.
Newcastle loanee Macaulay Gillesphey headed his first goal for the club to equalise, and then Raynes scored his second to give the Blues all three points.
The result puts Carlisle in eighth, just one place below the playoff spots.

High-flying Annan Athletic could extend their lead at the top of Scottish League Two tomorrow.
They face a tough test away from home against second placed East Fife.
If results elsewhere go their way they could open up a six-point gap over the chasing pack, but manager Jim Chapman says his players are being well guarded against overconfidence:
Dumfries's Sonnie Bean has confirmed he'll be competing in December's flyboarding World Championships.
The 23-year-old, who only took up the sport three years ago, will be the UK's sole representative in the event in Dubai.
He made his debut last year and will be targeting a top 30 finish this time around.
Carlisle-born hammer thrower, Nick Miller, has added yet more accolades to his trophy cabinet, after winning two prestigious hammer-throwing awards.
He has won the Freeborn Cup, which is awarded to the longest throw by a senior man each year, and the Sedykh Trophy, which is awarded by world-record holder Youri Sedykh for the 'outstanding performance of the year'.
Nick was also recently named Under 23 Athlete of the Year by England Athletics.
He was the silver medallist at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow last year and won gold at the 2015 European Athletics Under 23 Championships.
Nick, who trained with the Border Harriers and Athletics Club when he was younger, also holds the British record of 77.55 metres.
The Chief Executive of the Lawn Tennis Association has been in Cumbria.
Michael Downey came to Carlisle to see some of its brightest young players in action and to unveil plans for new facilities in the city. They include a permanent canopy over three existing public courts in Carlisle to enable all weather tennis. The new amenities will be mainly funded by the LTA to make the game accessible to more young people and to encourage the sport's growth.
