Match Preview: Pools welcome the Bees

2 March 2024

With just 10 games to go, Hartlepool United are into the business end of the season as Barnet travel to the Suit Direct Stadium on Saturday afternoon (3pm kick-off).

The Lowdown

Pools have won four of their last six games, narrowly being defeated by Solihull Moors last time out. The additions of Terrell Agyemang and Kwaku Oduroh have bolstered Kevin Phillips' side, and they'll be hoping for a good run of form with just seven points between them and the play-offs.

Barnet are third in the National League and have been high-flyers from the off. With former Poolie Nicke Kabamba and Hartlepool-born Harry Pritchard at his disposal, Dean Brennan has assembled a formidable side this season. Courtney Senior also features in the Bees' squad, having just finished a loan spell at Pools. Last time out, Barnet suffered a 2-0 home defeat to Chesterfield in midweek.

The History

All in all, the sides have met 16 times. Pools have won five times, Barnet seven times, and four matches have ended in a draw. In the reverse fixture, the Bees came away with all three points in the opening game of the season at The Hive. Goals from Josh Umerah and Jake Hastie weren't enough after three early Barnet goals.

Pools' last win over Barnet came in February 2021. Luke Armstrong's goal was the difference in a 1-0 victory at the Suit Direct Stadium.

Team News

Terrell Agyemang and Kwaku Oduroh are both eligible after joining Pools on loan during the week.

Manny Onariase has recovered after suffering a knock at the end of last weekend's game against Solihull Moors.

Tom Crawford will serve the final game of his suspension while Otis Khan, Josh Umerah, Anthony Mancini and Dan Dodds all remain sidelined with injuries.

Match Reports

Match Report: Pools beaten by Barnet

2 March 2024

A late Nicky Featherstone header wasn’t enough to secure a point as Pools fell to a 2-1 defeat to third-place Barnet at the Suit Direct Stadium.

Kevin Phillips made three changes to the side that suffered defeat at Solihull Moors last week, which included new loan signings Terrell Agyemang and Kwaku Oduroh.

The visitors started strongly as Anthony Hartigan saw his free-kick bend just wide of the target three minutes in.

Pools were eventually punished for their slow start as Barnet’s Gatlin O’Donkor found himself some space before sliding an effort past Joel Dixon and into the bottom corner.

After 17 minutes, Phillips’ men made a rare break forward as Chay Cooper switched the ball over to Mani Dieseruvwe but his effort was saved comfortably by Josh Keeley in the Barnet net.

O’Donkor had the chance to grab his second of the game as he met Ben Coker’s cross in the area, but his effort floated over the bar.

Hartigan’s set pieces continued to cause problems for the Pools defence and this time they were made to pay. The Barnet midfielder managed to curl his free-kick from near the corner flag into the far top corner and past the grasp of Dixon to double the visitors’ lead.

Pools started the second half much brighter, with Manny Onariase and Dieseruvwe both missing headed chances. Cooper’s effort from the edge of the box also forced a good save from Keeley.

Callum Cooke came close with just minutes to go as his free-kick was tipped around the post by Keeley. Featherstone did manage to pull one back with a brilliant glancing header, but Pools couldn’t find the crucial equaliser.
