Battling Leigh RMI earned a notable goalless draw at Burton Albion after playing for 85 minutes with 10 men.
Aaron Webster was hauled down by Gareth Stoker when through on goal and referee David Richardson had no option other than to dismiss the Leigh midfielder.
But Phil Starbuck's men responded well, although Burton's Terry Henshaw should have scored on the stroke of half-time when he spooned his header wide.
The home side continued to press after the restart but Leigh held firm.
