Howson double stuns Carlisle

Published Add your comment

Jonny Howson fired Leeds into the Coca-Cola League One play-off final at Wembley with a stunning last-minute winner to secure a 2-0 victory on the night that broke Carlisle hearts at Brunton Park.

The young midfielder hauled the Yorkshiremen back into the tie early in the first period and with the clock ticking down towards extra-time fired a decisive second goal into the bottom corner from 15 yards.

Howson´s double completed a surprise turnaround for Gary McAllister´s side, who had been outplayed in the first leg at Elland Road to trail 2-1 on aggregate ahead of tonight´s return.
