Pools dominated first half and were well worth their lead at the break. Must have had 20/30 crosses into the box. Our midfield was non existent.
For first 20 mins of second half I was watching on and off, but either Pools eased off or we switched something, because we suddenly looked a bit better. Roberts came on after 70, instantly dummied his man on the edge of the box, and drove one towards goal that looked like it would have troubled the keeper before an excellent block from one of Pools’ defenders. Then a couple of mins later he pulled up and that was game over really, we were down to 10 and you could see the heads drop. Looks like Bennett, who took his goal well, could be a canny signing for Pools - odd decision by Stockport to let him join them IMO!
Think this is about right - fancied us to equalise with Cal on and us starting to get on top, but the injury immediately ended those hopes. Burchnall really needs to work out why we can’t start games at all, on the back foot in the first 20 minutes every single game.
