Match Report

Pools were on the wrong end of a Chesterfield fightback as they lost an entertaining game at Saltergate having led at the halfway point. Martin Scott`s team selection was hit by a chronic shortage of strikers, with Jon Daly and Eifion Williams joining Joel Porter, Adam Boyd and James Brown on the sidelines. Midfielder Lee Bullock was given the job of supporting Michael Proctor.

Chesterfield winger Kevan Hurst hit the bar after just 10 seconds, but Pools soon settled and starting playing some good football. They opened the scoring with a delightful goal after 11 minutes. Bullock found Thomas Butler with a lovely reverse pass, and the winger`s pinpoint cross was glanced home by PROCTOR at the near post. It was a lead that the visitors held until half time despite some decent pressure from the Spireites.

The second half began with Chesterfield on the attack once again and the equaliser was not long in coming. Colin LARKIN picked up the ball 25 yards from goal and hit a sweet shot across Dimi Konstantopoulos and in off the far post. Proctor had a chance soon afterwards to restore the lead but somehow conspired to miss an open target from around ten yards. It was to prove a costly miss, and Proctor`s last contribution. The striker was showing visible signs of frustration and was replaced by David Foley midway through the half, possibly avoiding a second yellow card. Two minutes later Pools were behind as Derek NIVEN pounced an underhit clearance to hit a stunning half-volley which swerved through a crowd of defenders and into the bottom corner. The home side`s confidence grew from that point and they continued to pin Pools back. The killer third goal arrived with a little over ten minutes left. Paul HALL picked up the ball on the right wing and, having been shown inside, hit a left foot curler from inside the box into the far corner.

A game which had started well for Pools ended up being a comfortable defeat. Chesterfield looked a good side capable of challenging at the top end of the table. Pools by contrast looked a side short of confidence. A season of high expectation was struggling to get off the ground.
