Carlisle's second equaliser arrived on 83 minutes and, 60 seconds later, former Everton Academy player Manasse Mampala bent in a terrific finish for the winner.

Thanks for that Steve, it looked like it was a good workout for what appeared to be a young Everton team.

Steve (1) thanks for the link Steve, it looked like a very young Everton team playing against men, great winning goal from our ex player.

I thought the third choice keeper, zan luk Leban, the 18 year old Slovenian had a good game and could do little about each of the goals. The first two bad luck for him and the third was a belter and he had no chance.

Thanks for the link, Steve, I agree Leban did well. Carlisle looked fit and ready to start their campaign so the young lads had a great workout.

When we were winning 2-1 our No 9? missed a good chance he should have connected with 9 yards out.

The late winning goal was a humdinger, hats of to Mampala.
