Oldham deserve relegating on the spot for letting Matt Green score against them.

Good game at Vale Park, Bradford dangerous and started well, our system they exploited to score but that seemed to kick us up the arse, equalised seconds later and pushed on.

Not over this yet.
We don't come from behind so it probably is.

Still, at least we scored this week.

An absolute rollercoaster today. And not because of our game, where nothing has happened.

We’ve looked quite nervy and Stevenage have matched us that half - started well but we petered out as it went on. That Bolton goal all but promotes us as it stands though, assuming it stays as it is there.

Depends what you put our post February form down to. I guess we'll find out next season.
It’s the lack of goals that concern me. I don’t even think it’s the strikers, because they are feeding off nothing. I can’t even remember the last goal we scored from open play. If we had Lewandowski up front I don’t think he’d score in this team at the moment.

1 or 2 wide men who can cross a ball and a midfielder who can pick out a forward pass should be top of our shopping list.

didn't realise that Callum McDonald was at Tranmere. He was on loan from us earlier in his career. Scored once for us, but there were absolute scenes at Wrexham when he got the equaliser in a 3-3 match with the last kick of the game
Been a decent signing for us, initially loan but made permanent in the window.

Rovers been terrible first half, long balls against a team of giants and poor set-pieces from Feeney. Barrow had less possession but more efforts on target, could easily be ahead. Ollie Banks fairly decent.

We are just pure shite, turgid clueless shite. This is some of the worst football I’ve ever seen from a Carlisle team.

I’m starting to wonder whether Chris Beech is the man I want in charge next season.

Luke Spokes has just missed a sitter that even Matt Green would’ve scored.

It’s easy to forget that we’re a bottom 5 standard team, but today is highlighting it. It’s embarrassing how much better at football Harrogate are than us.

Think that would more likely be the difference between outside chance of playoffs and automatic promotion contenders.

We are the biggest bottlers in history. This is only going one way.

Just end this season. I can’t stand watching shite like that.

I could accept mid table gladly if we at least tried to play some football. Surely no Carlisle United supporter thinks that today was acceptable.

Wasn’t pretty. We looked nervous throughout. Thomason was poor. Nerves clearly got to him. Red card cost Morecambe and they were probably the better team up to that point. So frustrating but a win is a win. It’s a good job we can defend now.

Absolutely terrible. That's us done for the season. Fully expect a Grimsby win on Tuesday as we are gutless

Another good win that. Thought it was a hard working performance against a team who presented a difficult challenge to us at times even if not troubling Brown that much. Up into the top half and if you had said that could be a possibility thinking back to February it would have been utterly laughable. Shows how good a job DC has done really.

Well done to Cheltenham by the way. I know its not totally official but for all intents and purposes that's them up. Phenomenal job to bounce back after last seasons near miss.

Scunthorpe were the worst side I have seen us play all season, made us look half decent.

Deserved that after Oldham scores, the better team with the better chances.

Feared the worst when Spokes misses a one on one and Green fucked up a two on one when he passed to the keeper instead of Matete.

Luckily came good with a great run and strike from Matete though

8 wins and a draw in 9! Superb defensive effort again and into the top half.
