Leigh Griffiths grabbed his 10th goal of the season

Wolves missed the chance to go level on points with League One leaders Leyton Orient as Carlisle twice came from behind to draw 2-2 on Tuesday night.

First-half goals from Bakary Sako and Leigh Griffiths, his 10th of the season, came either side of a Prince Buaben strike for Carlisle at Brunton Park.

However, Wolves surrendered their lead early in the second half to a Liam Noble penalty and it was Carlisle who came close to inflicting only a second defeat of the season on their opponents with the better chances.

Much further south, late goals from Jay Emmanuel-Thomas and Joe Bryan earned Bristol City their first home league win since March as they beat Crawley 2-0 at Ashton Gate.

The victory lifted the home side out of the League One relegation zone and eased the pressure on head coach Sean O'Driscoll.

Emmanuel-Thomas capitalised on a slip by Kyle McFadzean to move in one-on-one with goalkeeper Paul Jones and coolly slot his 12th goal of the season 10 minutes from time.

The former Arsenal player then turned goal-maker as Bryan beat the offside trap to race onto his pass and hammer an 87th minute shot past Jones with his left foot.

Jamie Proctor twice went close for Crawley between the goals, having a header tipped over and shooting over from a good position.
