Abbott also believes a raucous atmosphere when the Cumbrians take on Exeter in their final home game could help persuade the club's out-of-contract players to sign new deals.

Carlisle head into the final two games three points behind sixth-placed Stevenage and Abbott told the club's official website: "We've had such a good go at getting there this season that we want to take it to the very last kick.

"The feeling if we do make it in two weeks' time will be unbelievable and we hope that everybody wants to be a part of it."

He added: "If we walk out of that tunnel at the weekend and there's a huge roar and a really positive atmosphere, then all I can say is that it will be wonderfully received by the lads and by the staff.

"I know that everybody at this club has worked unbelievably hard and that type of reception means everything to us. It's also the kind of thing which can help to persuade some of those players who have contract decisions to decide this is where they want to be."
