Carlisle Pull Off Shock Win At Elland Road

Carlisle Pull Off Shock Win At Elland Road

The Coca Cola League One playoffs are under way as Carlisle pull off an upset against Leeds United at Elland Road.

Carlisle went up 2-0 and looked as if they were going to take a valuable 2-0 lead back to Brunton Park thanks to the heroics of Carlisle goalkeeper Keiren Westwood who was in superb form throughout the game.

Leeds fans were left frustrated until the 95th minute when on loan striker Dougie Freedman scrambled a late ball into the Carlisle goal to make the score 1-2 on aggregate.

The second leg of the Leeds/Carlisle playoff will be played Thursday evening.

This evening Swindon Town`s local rivals take on Crystal Palace at Ashton Gate. City have a 2-1 advantage going into a match. A draw or a win would secure Bristol City`s place in the Coca Cola Championship playoff final at Wembley.
