Reserves Defeat York In League Cup

30 September 2015

Pools Reserves got back to winning ways on Wednesday afternoon when they came from behind to beat York City 3-1 in the Final Third Development League Cup.

The hosts got themselves in front early on when they took advantage of a defensive slip-up and Callum Rzonca finished coolly to make it 1-0.

Pools responded well to the setback and good play between young Scott Howes and Kudus Oyenuga created an opportunity but Oyenuga saw his shot saved.

Dylan Elliott also had a chance to level things up before the break but again keeper Michael Ingham came to the rescue to block the effort.

City came out quickly after the break and Peter Denton had to make a smart save to prevent them from doubling their lead, while Oyenuga had a shot blocked at the other end.

Ingham made another good save from Lewis Hawkins but was unable to stop Pools drawing things level when Ebby Nelson-Addy’s cross was turned in to his own net by David Tutonda.

Two minutes later Pools were in front though an unlikely source as young defender Josh Nearney got forward to good effect and smashed a great shot in the top corner beyond Ingham.

Another defender was on the scoresheet for Pools moments later too – this time it was Dan Jones who scored superbly from a direct free-kick on the edge of the penalty area.

Connor Smith could have added further gloss to the scoreline late on but Ingham was in the right place to make a block again and keep the score at 3-1.
