Result: Carlisle United comeback stuns Coventry City

Carlisle United come from behind to beat Coventry City 2-1 at the Sixfields Stadium in League One.

Carlisle United have come from behind to beat Coventry City 2-1 at the Sixfields Stadium in League One tonight.

Franck Moussa came close to firing the Sky Blues ahead after 10 minutes, only to see his goal-bound effort tipped wide by Sunderland loanee Jordan Pickford.

Steven Pressley's troops continued to force the issue and threatened once again shortly after through Carl Baker, whose right-footed effort from outside the area narrowly missed the top corner.

However, the pressure soon paid dividends for the hosts. City took the lead shortly after the half-hour mark through Moussa, latching on to a Conor Thomas pass before side-footing beyond Pickford from close range.

Graham Kavanagh's men started the second half on top and found their reward 10 minutes after the restart through Liam Noble, who received a Lee Miller pass to finish off a swift counter-attack by slotting past Joe Murphy.

Miller menaced once again to set up United's second shortly after, capitalising on a loose pass from midfield before playing in Sam Byrne who fired past Murphy to complete the turnaround and send Carlisle up to 15th in England's third tier.
