Match Report

A battling Pools performance was rewarded with a second successive clean sheet and a third away win of the season.

With injuries to key players still hampering his team selection, Martin Scott opted for a safety-first approach with five across the midfield and the fit-again Jon Daly employed as a lone striker. Bristol City were looking to continue their recent recovery under new manager Gary Johnson, who named former Sunderland striker Marcus Stewart in his starting line-up.

A poor first half was dominated by the home side, but resolute defending from Pools ensured that Dimi Konstantopoulos had little to deal with apart from a couple of shots from distance. Early in the second half it was Pools who took a surprise lead. A cross from the left wing was headed back across goal by Antony Sweeney and Michael PROCTOR pounced to drive home from the corner of the six yard box. Shortly afterwards, Sweeney was replaced by Mark Tinkler as Martin Scott tried to defend the precious lead against a dominant home team. Konstantopoulos produced fine saves to deny Steve Brooker and Guy Madjo, while Michael Bridges should have done better with a far post header. Those chances were close as City got, as Michael Nelson and Neill Collins dealt superbly with a succession of crosses.

With the home attack getting increasingly desperate, Pools had a couple of breakaway chances to increase the lead, with Steve Phillips saving well to keep out efforts from Proctor and Michael Maidens that would have given the score a more flattering look. But Pools held out for three precious points and their first ever win at Ashton Gate.
