Match Report

Pools picked up their first league points in three attempts with a hard-fought win against a lacklustre Bradford City side.

After the previous week`s defeat at Gillingham, Martin Scott went into the game with a brand-new striker pairing. Chris Llewellyn had spent his time at the club so far playing on the flanks, but was finally given a start in his preferred position up front. Alongside the Welshman was Ipswich Town loanee Dean McDonald. Thomas Butler was suspended following his red card at Gillingham so Ritchie Humphreys took his place on the left of midfield, with John Brackstone filling in at left back.

Pools started the game brightly and looked the better side in the opening exchanges. McDonald and Llewellyn worked well together and caused the City defence lots of problems. Llewellyn came closest to scoring when his shot flew across the face of goal, while Mark Tinkler had a decent effort saved. The home side`s best opportunity fell to Lewis Emanuel, but his shot was confortably saved by Dimi Konstantopoulos. After 34 minutes, McDonald tried his luck but his wild shot missed the target. To the annoyance of the home support, the referee adjudged that the shot had been deflected, and this annoyance turned to anger when Pools took the lead from the resulting corner, TINKLER rising at the far post to head home. Bradford thought they had equalised almost immediately when Dean Windass volleyed past Konstantopoulos from a precise Steve Schumacher chip, but the linesman`s flag cut short his celebrations. It was to be the last good chance of the first half, and despite City dominating possession in the second period, the Pools defence battled admirably and the home team never looked like forcing an equaliser.
