Walsall   2 - 1   Carlisle

Walsall 2 - 1 Carlisle

Walsall 2-1 Carlisle

A Matt Richards double helped Walsall come from behind to beat Carlisle.

The visitors went ahead through Mike Grella, who pounced from close range after Saddlers goalkeeper James Walker had saved from Frank Simek.

The home side levelled soon after, Richards curling a free-kick from just outside the box into the top corner.

The midfielder struck again to seal the victory, latching onto a short free-kick from Richard Taundry and smashing home a low left-foot shot.


Carlisle United boss Greg Abbott tells BBC Radio Cumbria:
"We're disappointed we didn't get something out of the game, we've had enough of the play to get three points.

"The three points were there for the taking there today, we're angry to come away from the game with nothing.

"We did stop Walsall to an extent but we've been done by two set-pieces, which against a player of Matt Richards' quality you're always likely to suffer."
