Jason Price grabbed the third goal of his loan spell as Carlisle ended a run of three straight defeats to draw 1-1 at home to Walsall.
The Millwall striker pounced just before the half-hour mark to grab a share of the spoils after Darren Byfield had secured an early lead for the Saddlers.
Carlisle were rocked by Byfield's second-minute strike when he latched on to Julian Gray's throughball and skipped clear of the defence. Keeper Adam Collin partially blocked the striker`s shot but the ball bounced forward and into the net to hand Byfield his 10th goal of the season.
The hosts had most of the play although their defence always looked susceptible to Walsall's counter-attacks, with Byfield a constant threat.
Greg Abbott`s side drew level in the 29th minute when Gary Madine flicked on Adam Clayton's pass, giving Price the opportunity to break into the penalty area and coolly beat Rene Gilmartin with a low shot from 12 yards.
The Saddlers keeper prevented Carlisle from grabbing the lead four minutes later when he parried Ben Marshall's curling effort.
Half-time substitute Mark Hughes then rescued Walsall when he got in ahead of Madine to prevent the Carlisle striker getting on the end of Evan Horwood's cross.
Byfield was Walsall's danger man at the other end and Collin needed two attempts to field a low effort from the forward after he had escaped the attentions of Ian Harte.
Richard Taundry then fired a shot across the face of goal for a Walsall side who failed to improve their record of not having won in the last eight away games.
