The 4-4 draw between Carlisle United and AFC Wimbledon came as a pleasant surprise to Blues fans following a series of poor games and relegation into League two last season.
Things are looking up for the team following their performances following the sacking of Kavanagh.
Goal-scorer Josh Gillies tells us what he thinks has changed:
Former boss Neil McDonald could be set to make a surprise return to Brunton Park as the new manager.
McDonald, currently assistant to Sam Allardyce at Premiership side West Ham United, left Carlisle in mysterious circumstances after just one game of the 2007/8 season.
McDonald was spotted in the director's box at Saturday's incredible 4-4 draw at home to AFC Wimbledon. Bookies are making McDonald the new favourite to take over.
Other potential coaches spotted at the game were Andy Preece and Ronnie Moore.
Fans at Saturday's Carlisle United game have agreed that the team showed more spirit than previous games.
The Blues walked away with a 4-4 draw to AFC Wimbledon. Although Gary Dicker's send off may have disheartened some fans, it's agreed that the team are playing better:
Carlisle's Simon Lawson has won silver in the elite wheelchair race at the Great North Run for the second time in three years.
He finished just behind Spain's Jordi Madeira who won the race in a time of 43 minutes two seconds.
Whitehaven have avoided relegation on a tense day of Rugby League.
Haven beat Swinton 44-18 at Leigh Sports Village, but still had to endure a nervous wait to see if results elsewhere would save them.
In the end a late try by Featherstone in their game with Keighley meant that it was the Yorkshire side who drop out of the Championship, with Whitehaven finishing above them by a single point.
Workington Town beat Dewsbury Rams 23-4 to secure a play-off place.
