Match report: Pools take a point from The Hive

24 November 2020

It certainly was a game that will be remembered by the few and certainly not the many as Pools earned a point at The Hive.

The game started without any fluency as both sides were unable to put a combination of passes together. Mason-Clark continued to be a threat for Barnet on the right-hand side as they tried to play directly to forward man JJ Hooper.

The only clear cut chance of the first half fell to Barnet. Some good play from Mason-Clark resulted with a cross into the box where Petrasso headed wide at the back post.

Into the second half Pools started to up the tempo with Molyneux starting to get more involved in the game. However, the first chance of the second half did fall to that man Petrasso again as he cut inside and shot at goal but it was held by Ravas.

65 minutes gone and the biggest chance of the game so far for Pools fell to Tom Crawford. The midfielder picked the ball up on the edge of the box, cut onto his right foot and shot just wide of the post.

Pools continued to apply pressure especially with the introduction of Ofosu who became the biggest bright spark for Challinor's men.

The final big chance of the game fell to Molyneux who picked the ball up on the right-hand side, cut onto his left, drove inside and got a shot away that was unfortunately tame enough for Loach to collect.

The game ended 0-0 as Pools will now have a bit of time off before next weeks fixture against Solihull Moors.

Substitutes: Ofosu for Donaldson (69')
