Match Preview: Pools at home in Isuzu FA Trophy

13 January 2024

Pools face Hampton & Richmond Borough in the fourth round of the Isuzu FA Trophy - the first ever meeting between the two sides.

The Lowdown

Caretaker manager Lennie Lawrence has managed one win and one defeat during his time in charge of the Pools side so far. A 2-1 home victory over Oxford City last weekend was followed by a 2-1 defeat on the road to Fylde in midweek. Pools have only been in action once in the Isuzu FA Trophy this campaign, which resulted in a 5-1 away victory over City of Liverpool in December.

Sitting second in the National League South, Hampton & Richmond have lost just one league game since the end of September. Mel Gwinnett names two former Poolies within his ranks - Jake Gray and Mason Bloomfield. The Beavers defeated Cray Valley in the second round of this competition, before securing an upset at Southend with a win on penalties.

The tie will be settled on the day at the Suit Direct Stadium, with it going straight to penalties should it finish level within the 90 minutes.

Team News

Dan Dodds, Alex Lacey, Josh Umerah and Mani Dieseruvwe will be unavailable for Saturday's fixture through injury.

Callum Cooke is currently managing a knock on his ankle, while Anthony Mancini continues to return from his long-term hamstring injury.

Match Report: Pools exit Trophy on penalties

13 January 2024

Pools were knocked out of the Isuzu FA Trophy after a penalty shootout defeat to Hampton & Richmond Borough at the Suit Direct Stadium.

Lennie Lawrence made two changes to the side from the 2-1 defeat at AFC Fylde on Tuesday, with Tom Parkes and Courtney Duffus being named in the starting line-up for the first time.

It was a slow start to the game, but Pools still managed to create a few half chances in the early stages. Tom Crawford and Luke Hendrie both had long-range efforts, but neither threatened Adam Desbois in the Hampton & Richmond Borough net.

Duffus and Anthony Mancini seemed to strike a promising partnership and managed to create the best opportunity in the closing stages of the first half, but Duffus’ flick didn’t have enough power to threaten Desbois.

Hartlepool piled on the pressure early in the second half as Joe Grey beat his man with ease before finding Duffus in the box, but he was denied by an incredible double save by Desbois.

Chris Wreh replaced Duffus after 76 minutes and made an instant impact as he set up Joe Grey on the edge of the box, but his effort was blocked once again.

Another substitute in Jake Hastie had a golden opportunity to put Pools ahead but despite finding so much space in the visitors’ box, he hit his attempt straight at Desbois.

Pools were reduced to ten men with just minutes to go, after Hastie was shown two yellow cards in quick succession.

Connor Kurran-Brown, Jake Grey and Daniel Wishart both had late opportunities to snatch a victory for the visitors but couldn’t find the target, sending the game to a penalty shootout.

Penalty misses by Nicky Featherstone and David Ferguson sent the visitors on their way to a 4-2 victory with top scorer Ben Seymour converting the winning penalty.

Pools: Dixon, Hendrie, Onariase, Parkes, Ferguson Wallace, Featherstone, Crawford (Stephenson 80), Mancini (Hastie 71), Grey, Duffus (Wreh 76)

Subs (not used): Jameson, Dolan, Pruti, Paterson
