Wycombe and Grimsby missed the chance to go top of League Two as they were both held to away draws.
With Carlisle's game with Lincoln falling foul to the weather as four other League Two matches did on Saturday, they would have expected to be knocked off top spot - but they remain at the summit.
Wycombe looked as if they would be returning to the top as Roger Johnson (pictured) gave them an early lead at Cheltenham.
But Gavin Caines levelled with 18 minutes left for The Robins and The Chairboys were forced to hang on as Kevin Betsy was dismissed for John Gorman's side.
Grimsby too could only claim a 1-1 draw as they were held at lowly Rushden.
Ben Futcher put The Mariners ahead on the hour, but second from bottom Rushden claimed a share of the spoils thanks to Simeon Jackson (72).
Leyton Orient could have moved into the automatic promotion spots, but they threw away a two-goal lead as they drew 3-3 at Shrewsbury.
Matt Lockwood (19) and Paul Connor (26) looked to have put The O's on track for victory, but three goals in six minutes from Mark Stallard (39), David Edwards (41) and Sagi Burton (45) saw Town go in at half time with an unexpected lead.
Orient managed to grab a point thanks to Adam Tann who levelled just two minutes into the second half.
Peterborough remain sixth after claiming a 2-0 win over Stockport at London Road.
Dean Holden set Posh on their way with his goal after 70 minutes and Ryan Semple secured the points in the final minute.
Wrexham came from 2-0 down to grab a draw at Underhill against Barnet.
Jason Norville (30) and Tresor Kandol (37) put The Bees two goals to the good, but strikes either side of the break from Mark Jones (44) and Matt Derbyshire (51) gave the Welsh outfit a point.
The mid-table Nottinghamshire battle at Meadow Lane ended all square as Notts County and Mansfield drew 2-2. Chris Palmer put County ahead just before the break, but Laurence Wilson (61) and Richie Barker (64) made it 2-1 for the visitors - only for Daniel Chillingworth to level.
The rest of the games in League Two were all postponed.
