Cumbrians 3-4 Burton Albion
The goals went flying in at Brunton Park on Tuesday night but eventually it was Carlisle that were on the wrong side of a seven-goal thriller.
A first half, in particular, that had goals a plenty made the real difference against Burton Albion who ran out 4-3 winners in the end.
Damien McCrory was brought on early on as an injury replacement with McCrory's (5) first actions to fire past Dan Hanford from 25-yards to put Burton one-up.
It wasn't long until we were level as Anthony Sweeney headed back across goal for Kyle Dempsey (12) to level up from close range less than 10-minutes later.
Burton were two-one up when Lee Bell (27) drove home from 30-yards to restore the visitors lead.
With possession again lost in midfield, this time Gary Dicker lost out to Stuart Beavon, Jacob Blyth (40) was put in to make it three just before the break.
In the second minute of injury-time Burton further extended their lead when Alex MacDonald's (45) cross was deflected in off Hanford for the fourth yet even deeper into injury-time still great goal, this time from Brad Potts (45), from 30-yards saw us get a goal back.
A double change was made by Keith Curle at the break and one of those that came on, for his Carlisle debut, was Derek Asamoah, A defensive mistake allowed Asamoah (65) got in to make it four-three in Burton's favour.
Burton went down to 10-men when Beavon was sent off for a second bookable offence but an equaliser couldn't be found as Burton ran out four-three winners.
