Carlisle’s League 2 season continued with a defeat against Wimbledon at Kingsmeadow on Tuesday.

The chance to close in on the play-offs was missed by Carlisle with a one-nil defeat seeing Wimbledon themselves move into them and up to fifth.

After a goalless first half Carlisle had Mark Gillespie sent off early in the second period for brining down Tom Elliot outside the box. Minutes later Wimbledon’s Paul Robinson forced the ball home past substitute ‘keeper Dan Hanford.

Captain Michael Raynes was denied an equaliser by the post late on.

These were the other results.

Tuesday 23rd February 2016
Accrington 3-2 Notts County
Wimbledon 1-0 Carlisle
Barnet 1-0 Portsmouth
Exeter 1-4 Oxford Utd
Yeovil 0-0 Plymouth
York 1-2 Northampton

Champions elect Northampton (two-one) continue their near relentless march to promotion with another win to further extend the club record when they won at relegation threatened York.

Oxford’s (four-one) win at Exeter saw the U’s top three bid going again after this had stalled, the St James Park defeat was another nail in the Grecians coffin as far as a play-off place being secured goes.

Accrington (three-two) won against Notts County to keep the pressure on the top three with Plymouth (nil-nil) dropping point when held to a draw by relegation threatened Yeovil, which is what they did to Portsmouth at the weekend.

Pompey’s (one-nil) own promotion effort were dealt a huge blow by a defeat at Barnet to keep their poor run of form going and, at the moment, them looking like they might even miss the play-offs with this something Wimbledon (one-nil) could well achieve with the Dons’ fine form continuing against a possible play-off rival Carlisle.
