Carlisle United 2-0 Plymouth Argyle
Carlisle United secured their League Two status with victory over play-off chasing Plymouth Argyle.
The visitors twice tested Mark Gillespie early on with rasping drives from Anthony O'Connor and Bobby Reid.
The Cumbrians took the lead when Gary Dicker volleyed past Luke McCormick from 25 yards out.
The lead was doubled just after the break when Kyle Dempsey fed Billy Paynter, who slid a low shot into the left corner.
The win guarantees Carlisle's survival as they moved nine points clear of the relegation zone with only two games remaining.
Plymouth remain in sixth but are now only in the play-off places on goal difference after Luton's 3-0 win over Hartlepool.
