  • Just two weeks remain until Championship campaign gets underway

Ex-AFC Fylde man twists and turns his man before firing over Chris Maxwell’s bar. Another close shave.

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.

Today’s attendance has been announced as 1,863, with 256 of those coming from Blackpool.

Michael Fitzgerald, meanwhile, has just replaced Marvin Ekpiteta.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Ewan Bange lobs the ball into Brad Holmes, who takes it down before firing harmlessly wide.
