Carlisle United managed to take home three points this afternoon after a late goal in the 78th minute from Charlie Wyke.
They now lie 10th in the table, equal with Wycombe on points, but behind on goal difference.
The Blues' penultimate game of the season is at home to Oxford United on Saturday April 30.
Carlisle United can be proud of their season according to goalkeeper Mark Gillespie.
The Blues League Two play-off hopes were all but extinguished after Tuesday's 2-1 home defeat to Luton Town.
But Gillespie believes that, compared to a year ago, the club is in a much better place:
Carlisle United have earned a point after a 0-0 draw away to Cambridge.
Hallam Hope and Mark Ellis were both sent off but Keith Curle's side managed to hold on for a draw.
Carlisle United have beaten Hartlepool United 1-0 at Brunton Park in League Two.
The only goal came from substitute Hallam Hope in the 55th minute. The win leaves the Blues 8th in the table, just one place and one point outside the play-off zone.
They play again at home to Mansfield at the weekend.
Flares were set off prior to kick off between Carlisle United and Everton last July and inside the ground.Read the full story ›
Carlisle United drew at home to Wycombe Wanderers.
The Blues went behind to Sam Wood's early header, but quickly hit back through Charlie Wyke.
Goalkeeper Mark Gillespie then saved a penalty in an action packed first half.
Marcus Bean was sent off for Wycombe in the second half, but Carlisle couldn't take advantage.
The game finished one all, and the Blues drop to eleventh in the table.
Manager Keith Curle responded after the game:
Carlisle United slipped to 11th in the League Two table, after being held to a 1 - 1 draw at home, by Wycombe Wanderers.Read the full story ›
A Carlisle fan setting off a pyrotechnic device in the away stand at yesterday's match against Exeter is the likely cause of a fire alarm that led to the suspension of the game. Fire crews were called to carry out safety inspections of the stadium.
In a statement released last night the club revealed that the game was close to being called off completely. It was eventually restarted after 65 minutes.
The person responsible was arrested and taken into custody.
A spokesman for Carlisle United said: " Our club has gained a fantastic reputation in recent years for the way we travel – both for the numbers we take and the way we conduct ourselves – and we will not allow a small number of people to damage that reputation.
“Anyone found in possession of pyrotechnics, or any other prohibited items, either at Brunton Park or at an away venue, will be dealt with severely.”
Both clubs, the match day security staff, the emergency services and the overwhelming majority of supporters should be commended for their response to today's events.
Unfortunately the actions of one individual have caused significant disruption and put fellow fans at risk of injury. The taking of smoke grenades or flares to football matches is irresponsible and absolutely mindless.
It is something that has to stop.
Carlisle came away from their encounter away at Exeter today with a 2-2 draw - that was after play was stopped for an hour due to a fire scare at St James' Park.
Fans were asked to move onto the pitch when an alarm sounded just 9 minutes into the game. Problems then arose with the ground's floodlights, which further delayed a restart.
The Blues were already one nil down when play was suspended, but the break did nothing to help. Despite another goal from Hallam Hope in the 85th minute, Carlisle could only manage a draw.
