Match Report

Hartlepool`s first ever meeting with Yeovil Town ended in terrible fashion for Pools as they lost both the match and the services of star striker Adam Boyd as the visitors registered their first victory of the season. Martin Scott had made a couple of changes from the previous game against Scunthorpe. Thomas Butler had recoved from injury and returned to the starting lineup. Sunderland loanee Neill Collins was needed for Scotland under-21 duty and his place in the centre of defence was taken by Carl Jones who made his first team debut.

The game started in promising fashion for Pools. Jones came close to scoring with his first ever touch in professional football but his effort was blocked. Boyd then had a header well saved, and Ben Clark and Michael Proctor both missed good chances. With half an hour gone Pools were dealt a severe blow. Boyd injured his knee while challenging for a loose ball with Glovers keeper Chris Weale. He tried to play on for five minutes after sustaining the injury, but eventually had to make way for Eifion Williams. With Boyd off the field, Yeovil began to come more into the game as Pools looked increasingly short of ideas. Luciano Alvarez and Terry Skiverton both wasted good chances to give their side the lead as the half drew to a close.

Shortly after the restart Pools looked to have scored when a Ritchie Humphreys corner found its way directly into the net. To the anger and frustration of the home support, referee Darren Drysdale disallowed the goal for a perceived foul on Weale. Pools would not come as close again. The visitors won the game on 68 minutes. Lee Johnson took a free kick from the left hand side and nobody in the Pools defence picked up Argentine striker Pablo BASTIANINI who headed in from six yards. The remainder of the game saw Pools have plenty of possession, but they failed to create any noteworthy chances as Yeovil held on with relative ease. It was only to be hoped that Boyd`s injury was not too serious as the team slipped towards the wrong end of the League One table.
