Flashback: Sweeney Double Downs Magpies

21 February 2020

This week's Friday Flashback takes us back eight years to

Notts County's visit to Victoria Park in February 2012 in which Pools recorded

an impressive 3-0 win.

It took until eight minutes before the break for Neale

Cooper's side to hit the front when Antony Sweeney nodded home Evan Horwood's

precise cross from the left.

Sweeney doubled the lead after the break when he ghosted in

to sidefoot home from twelve yards before Andy Monhouse drilled in a third

twelve minutes from time.

The victory pushed Pools up to ninth place in the League One table but proved the final straw for The Magpies' Board, who parted company with boss Martin Allen soon afterwards.
