Match Preview: Pools travel to Fylde

9 January 2024

After a morale-boosting win on Saturday, Hartlepool United return to the road as they travel to AFC Fylde on Tuesday evening (7.45pm kick-off).

The Lowdown
 
Pools come into the game after defeating Oxford City 2-1 on Saturday thanks to strikes from Tom Crawford and Joe Grey. Since then, they've also bolstered their ranks with two signings - Tom Parkes has joined on a permanent deal, while Courtney Duffus has joined on loan until the end of the season. Pools are now 16th in the table, 10 points off the play-offs.
 
AFC Fylde are 23rd in the table, sitting on 22 points. They've won one in eight games, and that victory came last time out against Rochdale on New Year's Day. Led by former Poolie Chris Beech, the Coasters are looking for victories to preserve their National League status with the season ticking on.
 
The History
 
The sides have met just six times in the past, with Pools winning once, Fylde winning three times, and two matches ending in a draw. Earlier this season, Pools ran out 3-1 winners thanks to a Callum Cooke strike and two goals from Mani Dieseruvwe.
 
Team News
 
Lennie Lawrence has no new injury concerns, though Mani Dieseruvwe, Josh Umerah, Alex Lacey and Dan Dodds are all still sidelined. Both new signings are available to play, with Tom Parkes' international clearance received successfully.
 
How to Follow
 

If you're not travelling to Fylde, you can follow the action via National League TV here. Match passes cost £9.50 and grant you access to all streamed fixtures on the given day. Tuesday's game is available both domestically and internationally.

Match Report: Pools defeated at Fylde

9 January 2024

Hartlepool United missed the chance to return to the top half of the National League after going down 2-1 at Fylde.

Pools conceded twice to the relegation-threatened Coasters in the first 20 minutes and, despite a beautiful goal from sub Jake Hastie in the second half, they left Mill Farm empty handed.

Caretaker manager Lennie Lawrence took an unchanged Pools side to the Lancashire coast rowing that a win would lift them up to 12th in the table.

There was some early promise as Callum Cooke had a shot blocked and then went over the bar from a corner.

But there was a let off for Pools when Fylde captain Harry Davis tapped in but home celebrations were premature with referee Michael Crusham instead awarding the visitors a free-kick.

However, Fylde were not to be denied when they took a 17th-minute lead with a fine strike by Nick Haughton into Joel Dixon’s top corner.

Fylde were a danger when Jonathan Ustabasi was on the ball and he was the man who set up the second home goal in the 21st minute.

His ball was driven low into the box where Manny Onariase tried to make the block but only succeeded in turning it past his own goalkeeper.

Dixon then had to be sharp as former Pools midfielder Chris Beech’s side chased a match-clinching third but the goalie saved from Luke Charman.

Lawrence made a double change at the interval with new signings Tom Parkes and Courtney Duffus introduced in place of Kieran Wallace and Anthony Mancini.

Pools had a couple of efforts but Joe Grey’s shot was a tame one and Cooke’s attempt was saved.

Lawrence made his final throw of the dice on 73 minutes when Hastie was brought on for teenage full-back Louis Stephenson.

And what a throw of the dice as the Scot made an instant impact with his fourth goal of the season, curling a beauty past Coasters keeper Theo Richardson.

With the wind in their sails, Pools chased an equaliser and came agonisingly close from a free-kick. Cooke made the perfect connection but his dead-ball strike hit the underside of the crossbar and bounced into the box and to safety.

Late on, Hastie was at it again and tried to repeat his trick from earlier when he went for goal, but this time his shot went into the crowd.

It meant Pools slipped to their 15th defeat of the season and they remain 16th in the table.

Pools: Dixon; Stephenson (Hastie 73), Hendrie, Onariase, Ferguson; Wallace (Parkes 46), Featherstone, Crawford; Mancini (Duffus 46), Cooke, Grey

Subs (not used): Jameson, Paterson

Goals: Hastie (74)
