Carlisle’s League 2 season continued with a draw against Accrington at the Crown Ground on Tuesday.

A one-one draw with Accrington didn’t do too much to help the Carlisle play-off bid, which has suffered a bit of a setback in the past week or so with United literally playing the whole match with 10-men with Jabo Ibehre sent off in the first minute for a high challenge yet still went ahead through Hallam Hope early on.

When Adam Buxton went for a second yellow it was all-squad in terms on players with Terry Gornell coming off the bench to earn Accrington a point on the hour.

These were the other results.

Tuesday 16th February 2016
Accrington 1-1 Carlisle
Hartlepool 2-3 Notts County
Oxford Utd 0-1 Northampton
York 2-0 Exeter

Having started with a win in his opening game in charge Hartlepool (three-two) suffered a defeat to Notts County in Craig Hignett’s first as Pools boss at Victoria Park with, a possible, relegation rival York (two-nil) again winning to further enhance the chances of staying up with the Minstermen seeing off Exeter at Bootham Crescent.

A promotion battle, and possible title battle, saw Northampton (one-nil) beat Oxford at the Kassam Stadium to pull further clear at the top to leave the Cobblers in a very strong position for automatic promotion now and title favourites you sense.
