Match Report

James Poole's spectacular first-half goal gave Pools a second win at Bramall Lane within a year and sent them into the third round of the Johnstones Paint Trophy. The Blades, surprise early-season strugglers in League One, almost took the lead with a Conor Coady shot that clipped the bar in the first minute, and the home side had several other chances throughout the game without seriously troubling Scott Flinders. Poole's struck after 37 minutes, swivelling to hit a high volley after Andy Monkhouse had flicked Darren Holden's long throw into his path. The Blades tried hard for an equaliser in the second half but Pools did well to keep them mostly at arm's length. Former Pools loanee Neill Collins perhaps came the closest to forcing a penalty shootout but his stoppage time header was smartly saved by Flinders.

I got a bit of a shout from Monks to get myself in the box because there was a throw or a cross two minutes earlier and I’d stayed on the edge of the box. I have read the flick and got a good contact. From seven or eight yards out you want to get a good contact and more often than not they go in.
- James Poole
I understand that results haven't been good enough and ultimately that's what I'll be judged on. It's unacceptable. We need to start playing better and start scoring goals and stop conceding goals. I'm a positive person and I look for the positives but I don't think there were any positives at all to take from the game.
