Rotherham United 0-0 Carlisle United

Conor Townsend

Conor Townsend was sent off in first half stoppage time but Carlisle held on to deny Rotherham all three points.

In the first period, visiting keeper Ben Amos saved a Michael O'Connor shot before Carlisle's Sean O'Hanlon had a header tipped over by Adam Collin.

Townsend was then booked twice in three minutes and Carlisle defended superbly until Amos somehow kept out a point blank Tom Eaves strike on 78 minutes.

The Cumbrians almost stole it, Collin denying David Amoo in injury-time.

Rotherham boss Steve Evans

Rotherham boss Steve Evans told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"That was very frustrating, I've just had a quick look at the stats and we've had 19 shots on goal.

"But we've lacked a bit of quality in the final third today.

"We ended up taking pop shots from 35 and 40 yards, which is not us.

"We were unlucky once or twice when they've scraped things off the line but we need to better."
