Yeovil Town 0 Carlisle United 0: Carlisle United missed out on a League Two play-off place as they were held against relegated Yeovil.

The Blues dominated against the Glovers in the first half but, had it not been for keeper Adam Collin's heroics after the restart, United easily could have lost despite having more opportunities to break the deadlock.

United ended the season in 11th place.

Carlisle had the first chance on six minutes as Nathan Thomas found Hallam Hope who was denied by home goalkeeper Stuart Nelson.

The visitors continued to dominate throughout the opening 30 minutes and had plenty of efforts, but couldn't find a way through.

Carlisle's chances were mainly coming from distance and they had another on 40 minutes with Mike Jones testing ex-Gillingham stopper Nelson.

On the stroke of half-time, Callum O'Hare then tried his luck with a free-kick which went over Nelson's crossbar.

In the second period, it was once again Carlisle who had the first chance with Sheffield United loanee Thomas cutting in from the right but firing straight at Nelson, four minutes after the restart.

Five minutes later, Jones found Hope but, somehow, he didn't convert with Nelson making another save.

On the 57th minute, Yeovil had their best opportunity by a long way but Collin pulled off a great save to tip over Alex Dobre's header.

About 15 minutes later, there were then two chances for the away side in quick succession. Hope shooting at Nelson before Scougall fired well over.

Then, with 10 minutes to play, Cumbrian keeper Collin again made a save to deny Alex Fisher.

Four minutes later, Collin once again was needed to make a brilliant double save to deny Jake Gray twice.

It was Hope who had the final chance late in stoppage-time but his effort sailed well over the bar.

United manager Steven Pressley named an unchanged team as the Blues looked to break back into the play-offs.

Starting the day in 10th, United needed to get the better of bottom side Yeovil, who had relegation from the Football League confirmed last weekend, and then hope Morecambe beat Newport, Exeter lost at Forest Green and Colchester didn't beat champions Lincoln on the last day of the regular league campaign.

In the end, results elsewhere didn't go the Cumbrians' way, either, with Newport County drawing at Morecambe, Colchester beat champions Lincoln and Exeter drew at Forest Green.

Playmaker Jamie Devitt returned to Carlisle's bench after recovering from a hamstring injury.

Pressley, though, only named six substitutes with no home-grown player in the squad.

Meanwhile for the hosts, ex-United frontman Francois Zoko wasn't involved.
