Mansfield saw a lead lost at Carlisle on Saturday afternoon to leave us looking nervously over our shoulder as the hosts gave their survival bid a boost when the came from behind to beat us.

Having gone into half time ahead, it was looking good for us at Brunton Park, but two-goals in seven-minutes late in the second half saw Carlisle come from behind to beat us two-one.

With a goalless first half on Oliver (45) stunned the home crowed when he headed home, via the post, to give us the lead.

Smith kept us ahead, making some good saves but finally Carlisle drew level when Archibald-Henville headed towards goal with debutant Wyke (72) turning the ball home from close range to level it - 10-minutes from time Carlisle completed a comeback when Dempsey (79) put them ahead.

It took a late Gillespie save from a Raynes header to deny us a point, with the home side winning two-one.
