Carlisle United 2-2 Yeovil Town

Shaun Jeffers' late strike meant Yeovil secured an FA Cup third-round replay against fellow League Two side Carlisle by coming from behind twice.

The Blues looked to be on course for the fourth round for the first time in 19 years after Mark Ellis' 76th-minute header put his side in front.

Yeovil striker Francois Zoko's header had earlier cancelled out Carlisle captain Danny Grainger's free-kick.

But Jeffers scored an 18-yard equaliser in the third minute of injury time.

The game was played at Blackpool's Bloomfield Road because of flood damage at Carlisle's Brunton Park.

That did not unsettle the 'hosts', and Grainger clipped a left-footed strike into the top corner via a slight deflection off the wall on 25 minutes.

After the interval, the same player struck the bar with a dipping volley, with striker Charlie Wyke only able to divert the ball against the post on the follow-up.

Zoko then rose highest to head Darren Ward's cross over Carlisle goalkeeper Dan Hanford on 71 minutes, only for Ellis to surge into the six-yard box and turn in Alex Gilliead's free-kick five minutes later.

The Glovers continued to come forward and substitute Jeffers fired into the bottom corner from the edge of the area to force a replay.
