Match 55
23rd April 2005
Carlisle U (a)

Carlisle 0-2 Exeter

Steve Flack and Lee Phillips eased Exeter to victory, but it was not enough to secure a play-off place.

Results elsewhere conspired against Exeter, who were worthy winners against opponents already assured of participation in the play-offs.

Chances were scarce in a scrappy first half, but Exeter grabbed the lead when Flack's powerful header flew past Paul Jones just after the re-start. They made it two on 65 minutes, Phillips heading home from a corner.
