Sean O'Hanlon hit the post for Carlisle in the first half, but the Skrill South side were always in the contest and almost scored themselves through Graeme Montgomery's fine strike before settling for a replay.

A scrappy opening came to life after 12 minutes when striker David Moli, on loan at Boreham Wood from Wolves, turned sharply and forced Mark Gillespie into a save.

O'Hanlon almost gave Carlisle the lead when his header came back of the post before being cleared off the goal-line by Callum Reynolds.

Wood goalkeeper James Russell superbly tipped over Lewis Guy's 10-yard effort, but the hosts almost took the lead through Montgomery's dipping long-range volley that Gillespie tipped over three minutes before half-time.

Moli fired narrowly wide from a short corner at the start of the second half and then Austin Lipman, on loan from Arsenal, saw a 20-yard strike clear Gillespie's crossbar.

It took until the 76th minute for Carlisle to force Russell into another meaningful save, the keeper this time turning behind second-half substitute David Symington's low drive before James Berrett drove into the side netting near the end.

It's A Massive, Big, Brilliant Mailbox

And we left lots of Suarez/Costa mails unopened. What we do have is a video of some rotten Suarez tackles and views on the future of football, Spurs, Liverpool and...

But Biting Doesn't Hurt Like Stamping...

There are Liverpool fans arguing that Luis Suarez is nowhere near Diego Costa's sh*t-house league but we have plenty of love for the agitator too. Oh and Spurs...
