Carlisle came from behind to beat Notts County and extend their winning run in League One to three games.

Callum McGregor opened the scoring for the Magpies with a low effort from 20 yards which found the bottom corner.

Matt Robson equalised when his 25-yard free-kick found a gap in the Magpies wall and went into the back of Bartosz Bialkowski's net.

The hosts secured the win thanks to David Amoo's close-range effort, his sixth goal of the season.

Notts County remain second bottom of of the table while Carlisle move up to 14th.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Carlisle United caretaker manager Graham Kavanagh told BBC Radio Cumbria:

"Today is probably the day where I feel most exhausted, they had a lot more possession and I wouldn't like to see the stats.

"I thought they were very good. I didn't think we deserved to win the game but obviously you take it.

"It's been difficult, the first six games confidence was hugely affected and they've managed to turn it around and shown how good they can be.

"For me [I felt] relief, because I couldn't wait to see the end of the game.

"Once we got the second goal you know that the mentality within a team that's struggling at the bottom of the league is going to feel very, very down.

"They [the board] want to meet me on Monday, so I'm hoping it's 'here's the job'."
