Veteran Ghana winger Derek Asamoah came off the Carlisle United bench to strike the match-winner for the Cumbrians in a 2-1 triumph over Morecombe Wanderers in the League Two on Saturday.

The 34-year-old had climbed out of the dugout to replace Alexander McQueen ten minutes from time, and he struck the match-winner at the Globe Arena.

Charlie Wyke netted from the penalty spot and Derek Asamoah hit the winner.

Wyke’s spot-kick was awarded after substitute Aaron McGowan was adjudged to have pulled back Wyke.

And while Morecambe were still recovering, Wyke teed up substitute Asamoah, who netted from close range.
