The referee ends the match.
The half-time whistle blows.
Carlisle manager Greg Abbott will select his starting line-up for the home clash with Southampton from the same squad.
The Cumbrians progressed to the northern area semi-finals of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy with a 3-1 win over Crewe in midweek and Abbott has no new injury or suspension problems.
Striker Mike Grella, on a month's loan from Leeds, is due to play his last game for Abbott's side before returning to Elland Road.
Long-term absentees Paul Thirlwell (knee) and Danny Livesey (groin) are edging closer to a return to action.
Midfielder Thirlwell, out since early September, is two to three weeks away and Livesey about a month.
Carlisle hope to leapfrog Saints back into the top six with a fifth home league win of the season.
Danny Butterfield could return to the Southampton squad.
The defender has missed the last three matches with a calf injury but resumed training this week.
Butterfield is likely to have to settle for a place on the bench at Brunton Park with Frazer Richardson slotting well in at right-back.
David Connolly scored on his return as a late substitute in the FA Cup against Shrewsbury last weekend after almost two months out with a stomach injury so boss Nigel Adkins has a fully-fit squad to choose from.
Jose Fonte and Rickie Lambert were rested against the Shrews and should return but Morgan Schneiderlin may sit out again as a booking would see him miss the following week's clash with promotion rivals Peterborough.
Saints are sunk
Carlisle produced their best performance of the season to beat Southampton 3-2 at Brunton Park.
The Cumbrians took a 2-0 half-time lead with goals through Ben Marshall and a Dan Harding own-goal.
Southampton hit back through Alex Chamberlain before James Chester restored the home advantage and Carlisle held on despite Dean Hammond pulling another back.
Southampton were well on top in the early stages and home keeper Adam Collin was at full stretch to save a curler from Adam Lallana.
Carlisle went ahead in the 21st minute when Gary Madine switched the ball right to Marshall and the winger beat Kelvin Davis' despairing dive from just inside the area.
There was a slice of luck about Carlisle second in the 28th minute when Mike Grella cross from the left and Harding, aware that Marshall was lurking behind him, sliced his clearance under the crossbar.
Southampton struck back within three minutes of the restart when Chamberlain nodded in Lallana's cross, but Carlisle restored their advantage in the 59th minute with a header from Chester.
Hammond set up a storming finish with a 30-yard strike but the Cumbrians held out.
