19 October 2021

Pools record their first away win of the season as they march past Bradford City.


A dream start for Dave Challinors men, Holohan picked up the ball on the left hand side after two minutes, delivered into the box and Cullen was at the right place at the right time to poke the ball home and put Pools into the lead.


Despite the pressure from the hosts straight after the goal, Pools continued to look dangerous and had an opportunity to go two up after 20 minutes. Sterry played a delicious cross into the area and Holohan acrobatic effort was just into the arms of the keeper!


Gillead had the best chance of the game for the hosts as he found himself on the edge of the area after 30 minutes but his strike was wide.


Just two minutes later and Pools should have been two up, Molyneux went one on one with the keeper on the right hand side before a bending effort went inches wide.


Pools went into the break one ahead.


Neill Byrne had a big chance as the second half started, Nicky Featherstones corner found the number 16 who headed just over.


On 60 minutes Pools had their second, Sterry attacked down the right, whipped the ball in and once again Cullen was there waitng to head home and get Pools two in front.


Bradford contimued to attack and managed to pull one back on 72 minutes. The Cook corner was right onto the head of O’Connor who gave the hosts some hope.


The game was done and dusted two minutes before the end as the substitute Ogle delivered the ball into the box and Songo could only turn it into his own net.


Pools pick up their first away win of the season!
