Match Report

Pools`s travel sickness continued at a freezing-cold Hillsborough as Wednesday secured an easy victory in a one-sided game. Pools were on the back foot throughout the first half and had Dimi Konstantopoulos to thank as the Greek keeper saved twice each from Steven McLean and Glenn Whelan. McLean also shot narrowly wide and Whelan blazed over, while Congolese striker Guylain Ndumbu-Nsungu also went close as the Owls completely dominated the half. Ritchie Humphreys had the best effort for Pools, but his long-range effort dipped narrowly over.

The second half brought more of the same, as the home team continued to put the Pools defence under pressure. This pressure was finally rewarded on the hour when McLEAN diverted Chris Brunt`s cross past Konstantopoulos from six yards. It was the very least that the home side deserved, and they contuinued to press forward for the remainder of the game. Lewis McMahon and Ndumbu-Nsungu both ha efforts cleared off the line and Konstantopoulos produced a fine double-save to keep his side in the match. But the scoreline was given a more realistic appearace six minutes from time when Matt HAMSHAW`s 25 yard effort was deflected off Micky Barron into the corner.

Pools could have no complaints about the result, and the two goal victory was meagre reward for Wednesday`s dominance.
