Dave Challinor said his side earned their point against
Boreham Wood on Saturday despite being unhappy with the first half performance
Pools fell behind in the opening minute to Kabongo Tshimanga's
finish on the rebound after Ben Killip had tipped Matt Rhead's initial headeragainst the post.
However, Gime Toure rifled in his first goal since December in
the opening stages of the second half before Killip then saved a penalty from SorbaThomas to protect the point in a 1-1 draw.
“I am never happy when we haven't won but this is adifficult place to come,” he told Pools TV.
“They're a good side who are sitting third in the division so
it was always going to be hard – before the game we were looking to win but athalf-time I would have taken a point.
“We saved a penalty from them and have what, in my opinion,is a stonewall penalty that doesn't get given and those can be the margins.
“I was disappointed with our first half performance and I
told the players that but, to be fair to them, they dug in during the second
half and got what they deserved and with a bit of luck we could have had achance to get all three points.
“Ross (Turnbull) visited Chelsea last week and got some
boots given to him – before the game today he made a deal with Gime that he
could have them if he scored so Gime's got a pair of boots out of it so he willbe delighted!
“With forward players you want to get in a run after you have
had a bit of a period without one so hopefully that goal will do him the worldof good.
“Overall, if I had been offered seven points from the three games this week then I would have taken it and we have a chance to go and do that.”
