Silence for Cyril
Hartlepool United and Bradford City players observe a minute's silence at Valley Parade in memory of Cyril Knowles, who had passed away overnight. The result mattered little in such sad circumstances but Pools got a battling 1-1 draw, with David Rush scoring his first goal for the club.
