Match Report

Another battling performance on the road saw Pools extend their unbeaten league run to nine games. Chesterfield dominated possession in the first half but struggled to create much in the way of clear chances as the defence, marshalled by Nelson and Westwood, held firm against a succession of crosses. The best two chances of the half both fell to Pools. Joel Porter sent Adam Boyd away but he hesitated and hit a tame shot straight at the keeper. Then Boyd returned the compliment but Porter shot wide when through on goal.

Right at the start of the second half the hosts were reduced to ten men. Jordan Fowler, on loan from Arsenal, brought down Ben Clark to earn a second booking in addition to one picked up in the first half for a foul on Porter. From that point on Pools came much more into the game. The only goal of the match came on 55 minutes when BOYD spun brilliantly away from his two markers and shot low inside the near post at the second attempt after his first shot was blocked. Pools had chances to add to their lead but the Chesterfield defence remained intact. At the other end, the home team still carried a threat, particularly in the air. Konstantopoulos saved well from Wayne Allison and the same player also hit the foot of the post with a header. But Pools held out until the end of the game to earn another priceless three points.
