Carlisle United fans are preparing for the second leg of their play-off tie with Exeter on Thursday.

The Blues fought back from 3-1 down, to make it 3 all at yesterday's match.

The game was played in front of the club's biggest home crowd of the season - nearly 10,000 fans.

Many supporters feel the comeback bodes well for a trip to Wembley to end the season.

The fact that we came back to three all...so much strength, so much character. I actually think we are going to win the next leg I really do. 100% we'll do it at Exeter it is worth it."
