Carlisle United manager Steven Pressley has praised his players for taking their play-off challenge to the final day of the season despite their lack of striking options.

Ahead of Carlisle’s final match of their regular League Two season at relegated Yeovil today (3pm kick-off), Pressley said the way his team have managed to maintain their promotion challenge, despite only having injury-hit frontman Mark Cullen and teenager Connor Simpson as forward options, has been "testament to the players".

He said: "You have got to remember that we have played nearly the [whole of] the second part of the season without a recognised striker. We have dealt with that.

"It’s not something I have talked about until now but we have and, for us to continue to be in with a shout of the play-offs at this stage, is testament to the players.

"They have had to work hard, they have had to work hard to find a way to win certain games. So, well done to them because that isn’t easy."

To make the League two play-offs, the Blues need to win - and then hope Morecambe beat Newport, Exeter lose at Forest Green and Colchester don't beat champions Lincoln.
