Pools were looking to bounce back from a gut-wrenching defeat at Bristol Rovers on Saturday against a Carlisle side who have enjoyed an upturn in form in recent weeks under Keith Millen.

The Blues were unbeaten in four heading into the game and came close to taking the lead when Brennan Dickenson struck the bar with a freekick from the edge of the area.

Pools hit the woodwork themselves in the second half through David Ferguson as Carlisle stopper Mark Howard somehow diverted the defenders strike onto the frame of the goal.

Reagan Ogle almost made himself the hero deep into stoppage time when he met a Nicky Featherstone freekick but Howard was on hand again asneither side could find a breakthrough.

And here is how Pools were rated in Cumbria.
