Shrews fall to Dobie.

Carlisle 2

Shrewsbury 1

A LATE goal by Scott Dobie - his second of the match - condemned Shrewsbury to their first defeat in eight games just when it seemed they were guaranteed their fourth away draw in a row.

Shrewsbury badly missed the midfield influence of Paul Evans following his pounds 100,000 midweek departure to Brentford and rarely touched their best form.

It needed a stunning goal by Austin Berkley - his eighth of the season - to send them into a 30th minute lead against the struggling Cumbrians.

Gareth Hanmer's corner reached Berkley beyond the back post and a superbly struck volley whipped inside the keeper's near post.

The lead lasted only five minutes before a slack-marking defence let in Dobie to head Carlisle level.

The Cumbrians conjured out an 86th minute decider when Dobie sent a downward header past the diving keeper.
