Match Report

A goal of rare quality from Luke James gave Pools a fourth consecutive victory in a hard fought match against a Plymouth Argyle side that had a man advantage for over an hour. Jack Compton was shown a straight red card after an unnecssary 24th minute lunge had caught Jamie Reckford. For much of the next hour Pools were indebted to goalkeeper Scott Flinders, who made a string of excellent saves throughout the match. The winning goal came ten minutes into the second half. James collected Andy Monkhouse's flick inside the Plymouth half, ten yards from the left touchline. He turned his man and cut inside with a superb burst of acceleration before tucking the ball past Luke McCormick into the bottom left corner. Pools defended in numbers from that point, with more sterling work from Flinders helping to secure an impressive victory.

Today I felt as though the players became a team because of what they had to do to get a result. Every single one of them, from Scott right through to all those who came off the bench, have given their heart and soul to Hartlepool today.
- Colin Cooper
A young kid, 18-years-old, and he has gone past three defenders and we've made it look easy for him. They get a goal and it gives them a bit of belief they can win it. They get men behind the ball and defend with their lives. The keeper makes great saves, but no excuses, I'm not looking for any. It was a very very poor result.
