Offiong: Injury time winner

Carlisle substitute Richard Offiong snatched an injury-time winner against Exeter in a five-goal thriller at St James Park.

The Cumbrians had looked in control of the game having taken a comfortable two-goal lead into the second half.

With half-an-hour on the clock, Kevan Hurst's fantastic cross was met with an emphatic header by Joe Anyinsah 10 yards out.

Anyinsah doubled his tally on the stroke of half-time when Graham Kavanagh's deep free-kick was turned back across goal and the striker tapped in from close range.

But with 11 minutes remaining Exeter finally got a goal their pressure deserved as Barry Corr's shot was blocked and Adam Stansfield lashed a fine shot into the net from 18 yards.

The equaliser came in the 90th minute when Ryan Harley tapped in from close range after Steve Tully's shot had been saved.

But straight from kick-off Offiong notched the winning goal when he followed up his own shot which hit the inside of the post.
