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.

The result puts Carlisle in eighth, just one place below the playoff spots.
