Carlisle's Hallam Hope showed some great initiative to score after he waited for the goalkeeper to put the ball down before stealing in to tap home.

With his side 2-0 down to basement side Notts County, Carlisle's Hallam Hope scored the cheekiest of goals to hand his side a chance to salvage something at Brunton Park.

A Kane Hemmings double had already put County on course for just their seventh victory of the season, but as visiting goalkeeper Ryan Schofield took his time before taking a goal-kick heading into the final 15 minutes of the game, Hope spotted an opportunity.

Unaware of his presence at the far post, Schofield beckoned his team-mates to move further forward, before rolling the ball a few yards in front of him; Hope sprinted forward and tucked a low shot into the empty net before the helpless 'keeper could intervene.
