TOWN’S travelling fans can look forward to trips to Exeter and Wycombe as well as Brentford next season – but Crewe and Northampton are off the agenda.
Those two joined already-relegated Hereford and Cheltenham in dropping to League II as Carlisle breathed a sigh of relief.
Graham Kavanagh and Paul Thirwell scored as a 2-0 home win over Millwall saved the Cumbrians from the drop and left the Londoners facing a two-legged play-off semi-final against Leeds (MK Dons and Scunthorpe meet in the other tie).
Crewe crashed to a 3-0 home defeat by champions Leicester, who had Bruno Berner, Lloyd Dyer and Matty Fryatt, with his 33rd of the season, on target.
Northampton went down by the same scoreline at Leeds, where Luciano Becchio, Jermaine Beckford, with his 34th of the campaign, and Robert Snodgrass netted.
Leeds will visit Millwall in the play-off semi-final first leg on Saturday, with the Elland Road return on Thursday, May 14.
Scunthorpe clinched their play-off berth thanks to a late goal by skipper Cliff Byrne.
It sealed a 1-1 Glanford Park draw against Tranmere, who would have made the top six had they hung on to win.
In League II, Brentford, already crowned champions, beat Luton 2-0 at Griffin Park.
Exeter’s 1-0 away win over Rotherham, sealed by Richard Logan, put them in second place.
And Wycombe claimed the other automatic promotion place on goal difference after losing 2-1 at home to Notts County.
Bury were the side to miss out, and now face Shrewsbury in the play-offs, with Gillingham and Rochdale contesting the other semi.
