Carlisle United 0 Yeovil Town 1: Carlisle United failed to score at home for a record fifth straight league game as Tom James won it at the death for Yeovil.

The Blues' miserable Brunton Park run went on as they drew yet another blank in a dire game.

James then made it an even worse afternoon when his deflected free-kick found the net in the sixth minute of added time.

Never before have United gone so many games at home without scoring.

The Cumbrians have also now lost five on the spin at home in the league for the first time since 2003.

It is also a marathon seven hours and 44 minutes since they last scored at their own ground.

United's latest failure at Brunton Park saw them slump to 16th in League Two.

They enjoyed the better of the chances but were also guilty of some poor play in a mostly awful spectacle.

Macaulay Gillesphey went closest in the first half, the defender drawing a save from keeper Nathan Baxter with a 25-yard effort.

At the other end, Adam Collin denied Alex Fisher while Rhys Browne wasted a good opening.

Yeovil's Browne curled into the side-netting early on and then left two Blues players for dead before shooting over.

At the other end, Mike Jones went past a visiting defender before his deflected shot was pushed away by Baxter.

Yeovil lost Alex Pattison to injury on 29 minutes, Jake Gray coming on, while later linesman Richard Kendall also had to be replaced, fourth official Graeme Fyvie taking his place.

Jerry Yates shot wide for Carlisle and Liddle had an attempt blocked, Regan Slater also seeing a low shot blocked as United toiled to find some attacking inspiration.

Otherwise defences were on top with too many passes going astray from both sides.

Ashley Nadesan almost broke the deadlock early in the second half but was denied by Baxter.

Kelvin Etuhu had an effort blocked and Browne shot just wide for the Glovers.

John Sheridan - who had Gary Liddle back in his side after injury - brought Richie Bennett off the bench, followed by fit-again Jamie Devitt and Liam McCarron.

McCarron was denied by Baxter within seconds of coming on before James missed an opportunity for Yeovil.

Gillesphey was then denied by the visiting keeper as United searched for a late winner to no avail.

Yeovil then forced a late free-kick when sub Wes McDonald was fouled by Jack Sowerby.

James' set-piece shot then deflected past Collin to cap another rotten day for the Blues.

Danny Grainger was among United's unused subs after his return from injury.
