Match Report

The early season frustrations continued for Colin Cooper's side as Fleetwood became the latest team to leave the Vic with three points. Pools started the game looking slick and confident. Steve Howard had a header cleared off the line, while Brad Walker and debutant Matty Dolan both fired decent efforts just wide. The winning goal came against the run of play when Scott Flinders failed to fully deal with a low Antoni Sarcevic shot, and Jeff Hughes bundled in from close range. Pools huffed and puffed in the second half while rarely testing Scott Davies in the Fleetwood goal. The best chance of an equaliser came when Howard's header was tipped over the bar.

I'd like to think people can see what we are trying to do. It's not quite there, and we have to keep working at that ingredient. It's my and Craig's job to find it - that's what I'll be doing over the next few days.
- Colin Cooper
It was an extremely hard three points but it was three points nonetheless. We are always looking to improve all the time and we know that coming to a place like Hartlepool is tough a game for us and to win 1-0 and to win ugly is great.
