Carlisle United could move within a point of League Two’s play-off spots if they manage to fend off Hartlepool United on Tuesday night, one of three fixtures in the fourth-tier of English football this evening.
The Cumbrians, who suffered a 1-0 defeat to the hands of Portsmouth on Saturday, could climb up to eighth place in the league table, with only six games remaining of the 2015-16 season.
However Hartlepool will be no pushovers as Craig Hignett’s side have impressively won five of their last seven League Two outings, drawing the other two, to pull themselves 16 points clear of the bottom two in 17th spot.
Meanwhile at the very bottom of the standings; rock-bottom Dagenham and Redbridge could fall 16 points adrift of Football League survival if they suffer defeat to the hands of Morecambe and fellow relegation contenders Stevenage win at home to Yeovil Town.
The Daggers, who have lost their last three league outings in a row, haven’t played a League Two fixture since their 1-0 loss to Accrington Stanley back on March 19, whilst tonight’s opponents Morecambe romped to a 4-2 victory over Barnet at the weekend.
And finally; Stevenage welcome Yeovil to Broadhall Way, with both sides keen to extend their gap between themselves and the dreaded dotted line.
Boro currently sit just one place above the drop zone, but occupy a nine point gap after defeating Luton Town 1-0 at Kenilworth Road on Saturday.
On the other hand; the Glovers are a further three places and four points better off than Stevenage in the table after similarly defeating Newport County one-nil at the weekend.
