Pools pay the penalty
Eric Wildon challenges Park Avenue keeper Mitch Downie as Pools lost a frustrating match at the Vic. The struggling visitors were handed a lifeline when Joe Willetts missed an early penalty and they took advantage with a goal before half-time. Pools should have levelled but Willetts failed from the spot again during a second half of missed chances.
