Last week Southend fans had a late heartbreak as they missed out on a playoff place as a rival scored a late winner, and yesterday evening it happened to Colchester too.
Two goals from Tarique Fosu-Henry gave the U’s victory over Yeovil, but a winner for Carlisle at Exeter 15 minutes from time meant they took the seventh place and playoff spot.
In the first leg both teams drew 1-1
Meanwhile Chelmsford are aiming to reach the National League South play off final this afternoon.
The Clarets travel to Dartford.
Both sides drew 0-0 in the first leg.
