Carlisle 0-0 Preston
Carlisle and Preston played out a lively goalless draw at Brunton Park.
The Lilywhites spurned the best chance of the first half when Graham Cummings burst through on goal, only to be denied twice by keeper Adam Collin.
The hosts went close when Lee Miller headed Frank Simek's cross onto the post, before Thorsten Stuckmann tipped his rebound over the bar.
Preston almost got a late winner, but Collin was at his best to deny Chris Holroyd and keep the scores level.
