Match Report

Hartlepool`s four match winning streak was brought to an end as a strong Brentford side ran out deserved winners at Victoria Park. Martin Scott welcomed back Mark Tinkler from suspension and Neill Collins who had missed the previous game to avoid being cup-tied. Both returned to the starting eleven at the expense of Lee Bullock and Darren Craddock. The other change saw Michael Proctor handed a recall in place of Michael Maidens.

The Bees started the game strongly with striker DJ Campbell going close on a couple of occasions before finally putting his side ahead midway through the half. A good attack down the right flank culminated in Darren Pratley sending over a cross that CAMPBELL glanced into the net with a neat header. Shortly afterwards Dimi Konstantopoulos had to be at his best to deny Campbell a second with a fine one-handed save. Pools will have been relieved to reach half-time only one goal behind after a half in which they had threatened little. Williams had snatched at the best chance and sent the ball well over the bar.

Early in the second half, Konstantopoulos produced an extraordinary double save to deny Campbell once again, and it looked like the big Greek`s work might earn his side a point when Pools unexpectedly drew level with less than 20 minutes remaining. Thomas Butler hit a volley from the edge of the area that Antony SWEENEY diverted cleverly past Stuart Nelson in the Bees goal. A share of the points would have been harsh on the visitors but they managed to snatch all three, though there was a touch of controversy about the winner. Mark Tinkler appeared to be fouled on the halfway line but, as Pools waited for a whistle, the quick-thinking Campbell sent Lloyd OWUSU through to secure a fully deserved victory.

Pools will have been disappointed with an uninspired performance but a lot of credit had to go to a Brentford side that, on this evidence, looked strong promotion contenders.
