Francois Zoko grabbed a late equaliser for Carlisle as his header denied struggling Wycombe a vital away win.

The hosts scored when Rory Loy stabbed the ball home from Lee Miller's knock-down after Jon-Paul McGovern's pass.

Anthony McNamee levelled with a 30-yard effort and Wycombe then went ahead as Marcello Trotta scored his third goal in three games with an angled shot.

But there was late drama as McGovern curled in a cross from the right wing and Zoko headed in from six yards out.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Wycombe manager Gary Waddock told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"Of course we are disappointed to concede late in the game, but after the start we had, we would have taken the point. We played very well, carved out enough chances, and possibly should have won the game.

"That is the second week on the trot that we have set ourselves a mountain to climb, and credit to the players, they have done that.

"The keeper was outstanding for them today. The save he made from Trotta was fantastic and he made a save late on as well. He had a very good game."
