Match Preview

Duo missing for Pools Hartlepool caretaker manager Mick Wadsworth will once again be without Adam Boyd (back) and James Brown (ankle) for the clash with Bristol Rovers. However, both players are expected to return to training next week and will begin building up their fitness ready for a first-team return. Antony Sweeney has stepped up his comeback from injury, playing an hour and scoring for the reserves in midweek and he will be in contention to make the bench once again, while midfielder Ritchie Humphreys is definitely out with a thigh problem. Jake Kean continues in goal as Scott Flinders and Andy Rafferty are still sidelined with long-term injuries while youngsters Billy Greulich, Callum Martin (both ankle) and Dylan Purvis (knee) are also in the treatment room. Bristol Rovers manager Paul Trollope has no fresh injury concerns. Charlie Reece impressed in his first start of the season against Rochdale and will keep his place while Will Hoskins will also continue to partner Joe Kuffour up front. The inclusion of Hoskins leaves John Akinde occupying the bench again for the trip to Victoria Park. Mikkel Andersen will keep his place in goal after returning from international duty in the 2-1 win over Rochdale which means Mike Green will have to settle for a place on the bench. Chris Lines was on the score sheet against Dale and will continue in his advanced role while Byron Anthony should keep his place despite his own goal at the weekend.

Match Report

Pirates fight back to deny Pools Hartlepool threw away a two-goal lead in the closing minutes as Bristol Rovers staged a dramatic fightback to earn a 2-2 draw at Victoria Park. The visitors did not manage a shot on goal until the 85th minute, but somehow emerged with a point after an 89th-minute leveller. In a largely one-sided affair, the home side eased their way to a 2-0 lead. Andy Monkhouse's shot was deflected off Danny Coles and looped over goalkeeper Mikkel Andersen onto the bar on 18 minutes, before the same player hooked wide soon afterwards. And on 28 minutes, they took the lead. Leon McSweeney crossed from the right side and midfielder Joe Gamble flicked a header across Andersen into the far corner of the net. On 53 minutes Colin Larkin headed over, and Andersen was forced to dive full-length to deny Gamble a second. Pool got a second on 78 minutes when substitute Antony Sweeney broke away, picked his spot and tapped in low. On 85 minutes, Jo Kuffour's header - the Pirates' first effort on target - beat Jake Kean in the Pools goal. And, from a Stuart Campbell free-kick on the right side in the 89th minute, defender Byron Anthony scrambled in an undeserved point.
