Paddy Madden should have been celebrating a Yeovil victory after notching his 21st goal of the season and having a hand in two more.
The Irish striker, on his first return to Brunton Park since leaving the Cumbrians for Yeovil earlier in the season, saw his side give away a 3-1 lead in the dying minutes.
Although the 3-3 draw kept alive Yeovil's promotion hopes, manager Gary Johnson was in no doubt it was two points given away.
"I'm gutted," Johnson said. "It was a dagger to the heart. We are still there or thereabouts and I've got to keep shoving and probing to get them to believe they can get there.
"It hurts a lot. All of a sudden players start hitting the wrong ball at the wrong time and jumping out of tackles and not winning things.
"I've got a massive job to keep them competitive. Some players have it and some aren't competitive enough. If you are midtable then 3-3 at Carlisle sounds not bad, but I make it a very poor result.
"But Paddy Madden gave a fantastic performance. He chases lost causes and goes beyond the call of duty, which is why he will have a terrific career in the game."
