Alex Nicholls's late penalty secured a draw for Walsall against Carlisle.

The home side took an early lead when Jon-Paul McGovern picked out Lee Miller to tap in from close range.

McGovern hit the woodwork twice as Carlisle looked to increase their lead, whilst Walsall's Andy Butler also hit the post after a goalmouth scramble.

The visitors late equaliser came when Frank Simek brought down Butler in the area, with Nicholls grabbing a point for the Saddlers from the penalty spot.
