Carlisle   3 - 4   Charlton

Carlisle 3-4 Charlton

Carlisle 3-4 Charlton

Paul Benson headed an injury-time winner for Charlton after a spirited second-half fightback by Carlisle.

First half strikes from Johnnie Jackson and Joe Anyinsah, and Benson's first goal minutes after the break put the visitors in control.

Carlisle came roaring back though with goals from Mike Grella, Craig Curran and Gary Madine pulling them level.

Benson's powerful header from Simon Francis's corner sealed victory in the second minute of added time.

Charlton should have had the game wrapped up much earlier considering they had raced into a 3-0 lead.

Jackson opened the scoring for Phil Parkinson's men when he got on the end of Scott Wagstaff's cross before Anyinsah doubled their advantage seven minutes before half-time with a close range finish.

Benson then looked to have sealed a convincing win for Charlton with his strike minutes after the restart.

However, a goal from on-loan Leeds striker Grella turned the game on its head and gave Carlisle the impetus to stage a stunning comeback.

Curran headed in the home side's second on the hour and the comeback looked to be complete when Madine bundled in Tom Taiwo's cross to pull the scores level.

However, just as it looked like the scoring was over Benson rose to score his second of the afternoon, thumping a header past Adam Collin to snatch victory.


Charlton boss Phil Parkinson told BBC London 94.9:
"I felt that when we got the third, we started to believe that we'd done it, and you've never done it in football.

"When you have a ref like we did today, who I normally like, I thought he was Carlisle's best player in the second half, giving them every decision and every free-kick."
