Carlisle United striker Tristan Abrahams has the chance to fire Grimsby Town to promotion after the Mariners secured their place in the National League play-offs.

Grimsby's 1-0 win over Boreham Wood on Wednesday night kept their hopes of a return to the EFL alive.

Abrahams was an unused substitute as John McAtee got the only goal at Blundell Park.

Paul Hurst's side face Eastleigh on the final day tomorrow knowing their play-off spot is in the bag.

Abrahams has scored four goals for Paul Hurst's side since joining on a half-season loan in January.

With former Blues man Max Crocombe in goal, Grimsby look likely to face Notts County in the play-offs.

A point or more at Eastleigh will secure sixth place and a trip to Meadow Lane in the play-off eliminator on Monday, May 23.

Should Chesterfield overtake Grimsby on the final day, Abrahams and his team-mates will face the fourth-placed finishers - either FC Halifax Town or Solihull Moors.

Abrahams is able to continue with the Mariners with his loan also covering potential play-off action.

Manasse Mampala, meanwhile, was not in the Weymouth squad as the relegated south coast side lost 2-1 at home to Barnet.

The young Blues striker, who is being released by the Cumbrians, started their previus game at Southend, but has failed to score in ten loan outings for the club.
