Carlisle United bow out of the League Cup

Carlisle United bow out of the League Cup in a nail biting game that saw both Derby win 14-13 on penalties.

The League Two side played away to Derby County from the Championship. Darren Bent had scored to put Derby in front but Carlisle's Mike Jones took the match into extra-time with an equaliser 5 minutes into stoppage time.

There were no more goals in the extra 30 minutes, taking it to a penalty shootout which saw players take turns until the agonising 14-13 finish.
