Yeovil and Truro crash out of the Cups

Yeovil Town were knocked out of the FA Cup last night after losing on penalties to Carlisle in their replay at Huish Park.

And Truro City are out of the FA Trophy after losing 2-0 at Macclesfield. The Cheshire side will now play Torquay United in the third round next month.

Match report: Yeovil 1 - 1 Carlisle (Carlisle win 5-4 on penalties)

Carlisle will face Everton in the fourth round of the FA Cup after their thrilling penalty shootout win over Yeovil.

Mark Ellis stepped up to slot home the winning penalty after Matt Dolan had his spot-kick pushed onto the post by visiting goalkeeper Mark Gillespie.

Yeovil were left to rue a missed penalty by Francois Zoko in added time when he fired wide having sent Gillespie the wrong way - the Glovers having surrendered the lead when Antony Sweeney cancelled out Jack Compton's opener.

After a quiet opening 30 minutes, Shaun Jeffers played a pass into Liam Walsh, who neatly stepped over the ball, leaving it to fall into the path of Compton, who rifled past Gillespie.

Carlisle drew level on 77 minutes after Yeovil failed to clear a corner, and Sweeney scrambled home a header.

A mass brawl then ensued in the aftermath of the goal. Ibehre joined the melee and struck Krysiak on the neck, but referee Tim Robinson only showed him a yellow card.

After 90 minutes, extra time was notable for two red cards. First Yeovil defender Alex Lacey was shown a straight red card for a lunge on Charlie Wyke, before Luke Joyce's foul on Jeffers earned him a second booking six minutes later.

After Gillespie kept out Jakub Sokolik's header at the death, it was left to penalties to decide a pulsating tie, and when Dolan missed, Ellis made no mistake, slamming the winning kick home.
