Match Report

Hartlepool picked up their first point of the new season with a good point at Bournemouth`s Fitness First Stadium. Manager Martin Scott sprung a huge surprise by leaving star striker Adam Boyd on the bench, preferring to pair Jon Daly with new signing Michael Proctor. In the only other change from the defeat against Bradford City, Eifion Williams started in place of Chris Llewellyn. For the home side, veteran striker Steve Fletcher was denied a chance to try to score against his hometown club as a back injury ruled him out of the game.

A bright start saw Proctor almost give the visitors an early lead, but his volley was well saved by Neil Moss in the Cherries goal. That turned out to be the best chance of a first half played mainly in midfield. The closest that the home side came to breaking the deadlock was when James hayter dragged a weak shot across the face of goal.

Early in the second half, Pools took the lead with their first goal of the new campaign. Daly lost out to Shaun Maher in an aerial challenge on the edge of the box, but the loose ball fell to new signing Lee BULLOCK who crashed a great volley into the top right hand corner. The goal seemed to stir the home side into action and Maher came close to equalising, his shot bringing a good save from Dimi Konstantopoulos. Pools then had a five minute spell when they looked to push for a decisive second goal, but the hosts hit them on the break. John Spicer hit a long diagonal ball over the top to Dani RODRIGUES in the inside right channel. The Portuguese striker kept his composure to fire a low shot across Konstantopoulos. The big keeper got a hand to the shot but couldn`t prevent it going in off the far left post.

From that point onwards there were few chances at either end. The game ended in a draw - a fair result on the balance of play, and one that both teams will have been reasonably satisfied with.
