Carlisle United 2-2 Wolverhampton Wanderers

Bakary Sako (left) and Leigh Griffiths

Wolves missed out on the chance to go level with Leyton Orient at the top of League One as they twice surrendered the lead at mid-table Carlisle.

Bakary Sako gave the visitors an early lead after good work by Leigh Griffiths but Matty Robson set up Prince Buaben to score his first goal for the club.

Griffiths restored Wolves' lead as his header hit both posts and trickled in.

Buaben was fouled in the penalty area by Lee Evans and Liam Noble converted the spot-kick to earn Carlisle a point.
