Carlisle Utd fans: Ready for some crazy end-of-season drama?

The League One play-off race now comes down to 180 nerve-wracking minutes – and the prized sixth place is still up for grabs. Stevenage now hold all the aces but the contest is far from won – and Carlisle United could still keep their promotion dream alive.With two games of a dramatic season left, Jon Colman looks at the four contenders and all the possible outcomes.

Have your say

Well done to the team for an excellent season on minimal financial resources. We still have a slim chance of making the play-offs and I'm sure the players will give everything in the last two games. Just one point Steve, the club's lack of money is not an excuse - it's a fact that we have to live with. We have gone most of the season on crowds of 4,500 or less and that is simply not enough to compete with the big boys when it comes to signing players.

What a great season we have had, but i cant help but feel that greg could have done more to find a stiker to take on loan that might have helped us a bit more. Jordan cook has done ok but even if we manage to get to the play offs jordan wont be there. It makes more sense to find someone who would be here to the end, if we get to the play offs then we are in a worse situation than we are now. The team relies too heavily on lee miller and no plan be. This needs to be rectified and to be honest it should have been sorted by now. But well done to the lads this season for over achieving.

This seasons battle is irrelevant now, on hearing the tragic news this morning.
My thoughts are not with football at this time but with Lee Miller and the sad news that he lost his partner, Donna last night.
Heart felt commiserations to Lee and Donna's family at this very sad time.

It doesn't look good now but I know the lads will keep fighting through to the end.
I only have one churlish comment to make and that concerns late goals and substitutions.
When the records are taken and the paint dried I'd like to know since January when Lee Miller first went down how many times we have sponsored wing play at the cost of a midfielder that has usually been Tom Taiwo. The result has seemingly been a few late goals that have cost us points.
In my view it has been a very bad mistake to take Tommy off and go off in pursuit of virtually all out attack.
Just for the statisticians.

Whatever happens, thanks to Gregg & Kav and everyone at Brunton Park for a great season not forgetting the fans who must be the best travelling fans in the football league.

Remember the days on a sunny Saturday when we would wait for other results to come in with relegation at stake - at least it's at the better end this time! - still exciting.

It's a very slim chance as we have to hope that other teams drop points which I think will not happen as a draw will do for Stevenage leaving us to win both games........very unlikely , we all said we needed two players back in January .......... Excuse was no money yet again , the blame for this is Mr Jenkins as we were 5 points ahead at one time and decided that we had no money , now we will pay the price for that and no ambition to push the club forward. Steve.

I had a niggling feeling when Wycombe popped one in at Adams Park at the death and so those two points thrown away will probably prove vital.Still hopeful but when you rely on other results hope is all thats left.Thanks for a good season though and UP THE BLUES
