Most Carlisle United fans seem to be regarding the 2-2 draw against Cambridge as two points dropped, rather than a point gained.

I can see both sides of the argument. If I was a neutral at Saturday’s game, I feel like it was a match I would have enjoyed watching.

Steven Pressley’s side are playing some good stuff and creating some good chances, and both of the Cumbrians’ goals, scored by Jamie Devitt and Nathan Thomas, were well taken.

But Carlisle’s usually reliable defence looked shaky.

Even when the Blues went 1-0 down early on, I still felt that United would get back into the contest.

On-loan Callum O’Hare had another good match and, for me, he is improving every week. He looks better than League Two standard.

But in the second half, League Two play-off chasing United couldn’t quite get that killer third goal. I felt, if they had of scored a third goal, they could have easily gone on to get five. But the opposition are always going to have a good spell and are going to put you under a bit of pressure.

Sure enough, ex-Blue Jabo Ibehre came back to haunt his old club as he scored the equaliser for Colin Calderwood’s team which denied United victory.

The 36-year-old has always been clinical in front of goal, including during his spell at Brunton Park. At times, you can almost forget that he is on the field but, then, he pops up with a goal. Fair play to him, and he conducted himself very well, to be fair.

On Tuesday evening, legendary goalkeeper Jimmy Glass returned to Brunton Park to discuss that famous injury-time winner against Plymouth.

Fair play to the lad, I think anyone who has done something that unique has earned the right to speak about it as much as they want. I was at the game and I remember celebrating the goal. It’s a moment people in Carlisle will talk about for a long, long time.

At the time, keepers coming forward for corners late in the match was starting to come into the game, but it wasn’t that common. Whereas now, you see it happen in matches virtually every week.

Kelvin Etuhu is set to return to the Carlisle fold after spending more than a week away from the club following the birth of his son. Blues boss Pressley has admitted that will give him a real selection dilemma after recent performances of his other midfielders.

As well as the more experienced duo of Etuhu and Mike Jones, loan men O’Hare and Regan Slater have been consistent, too. They have helped to create a lot of opportunities of late but, at this stage of the season, you need whole team displays and you need results.

Tomorrow, the Blues travel to take on fifth-placed Tranmere and, no doubt, that will be another really challenging match.

This weekend sees the Cumbrians begin a tough run of fixtures with Bury, Stevenage and leaders Lincoln City also to play in the next four games. Fair play to the Imps, you can take nothing away from them because they have been really consistent this season.

Elsewhere, Workington Reds picked up a good result on Saturday as they claimed a 1-0 victory at Whitby through Conor Tinnion’s goal.
