- FT: Carlisle 0-1 Blackpool
- Seasiders continue their pre-season preparations with pre-season runout at Brunton Park
- Just two weeks remain until Championship campaign gets underway
89 - Late scare
Ex-AFC Fylde man twists and turns his man before firing over Chris Maxwell’s bar. Another close shave.
85 - Let off
Carlisle should be level. Brennan Dickenson has just been found in acres of space, but he’s lifted the ball over Chris Maxwell and wide.
84 - Attendance
Today’s attendance has been announced as 1,863, with 256 of those coming from Blackpool.
Michael Fitzgerald, meanwhile, has just replaced Marvin Ekpiteta.
80 - Foul
Carlisle have a free-kick in another dangerous position. The trialist right-back was the man to give away the foul after bringing down Brennan Dickenson just a few yards outside the box.
78 - Threat
Carlisle are beginning to get into some more threatening positions now, but Pool are holding firm. Late pressure is to be expected given the majority of Pool’s side is now made up of youngsters.
75 - Free-kick
Luke Mariette concedes a needless foul about 30 yards from goal. Dangerous territory here for Callum Guy.
He delivers the ball into Zach Clough, who flashes a header just wide. Let off.
73 - Wide
Luke Mariette combines well with Ewan Bange to set up Oliver Sarkic on the edge of the Carlisle box, but he drags his shot wide of the far post.
70 - Wide
Ewan Bange lobs the ball into Brad Holmes, who takes it down before firing harmlessly wide.
