A minute later, Wilson was denied one-on-one as he slid shot in the box with the effort being saved by the legs of Williams.

On the hour mark, Town went close to breaking the deadlock at midfielder Tom King came in from the left, beat his man as he entered the penalty area and drilled a low shot just wide of the far post.

At the other end, Jordan Holt worked his way into the box for the visitors hit a left-footed shot just wide of the far post.

Shrewsbury started the second period on the front foot and Wilson looked to catch out Carlisle goalkeeper Rhys Williams at his near post, but his high shot was well saved.

HALF-TIME: Shrewsbury Town 0-0 Carlisle United

However, it remained goalless at the break.

But the best chance of the first half fell for Wilson when he found space in the Carlisle penalty area on the left, cut inside and curled an effort just over the crossbar.

In the 18th minute, Karlton Rudd scuffed wide a shot from the edge of the box after being teed up while, the other end, Carta dragged a shot wide from 20 yards for Town.

At the other end, Joel Bonner put in a great block in the Shrewsbury penalty area from Cameron Saulkeld.

Town got the game underway and John McAtee hit a dipping shot onto the roof of the Carlisle net from 25 yards out in the fourth minute.

Ethan Jones and Chris Gallagher were both involved in the behind-closed-doors practice match at Wolverhampton Wanderers, so George Hassall and Joel Carta came into the starting line-up

In the absence of Ian Dawes, professional development phase coach Matt Rains took charge of a side which featured two changes to the team which beat Wigan Athletic in the Youth Alliance Cup on Saturday.

Town could face Carlisle in the Youth Alliance Cup North final if the Cumbrian side overcome Preston North End on Tuesday.

Despite striker Jordan Wilson going close to breaking the deadlock, neither side were able to find the net in the clash at Shrewsbury Sports Village.

Shrewsbury Town were held to a goalless draw with Carlisle United in the Football League Youth Alliance - North West league on Tuesday afternoon.
