The opening goal came a minute into the second half, Jeremie Aliadiere weaved his way through on the right-hand edge of the penalty area and bursting forward to hit low, hard shot past goalkeeper Howarth.
Danny Carlton leveled 2 minutes later for Carlisle United.
Didier Digard then scored from 25-yards out, leaving Howarth with no chance.
