Match Preview

Wright in Pools race Hartlepool defender Stephen Wright is in a race to be fit for the home clash with Colchester. Wright missed last week's defeat at Brentford due to an Achilles problem but is hoping to return as fellow centre-half Peter Hartley is suspended under the totting-up procedure. Another centre-half, Sam Collins, only returned to action last week after missing the previous four games due to a calf strain. Caretaker manager Micky Barron has no other injury or suspension problems and has striker James Brown (groin) at his disposal following his first appearance in over a month last week. Adam Boyd and James Poole are also in contention for the two places up front, but forwards Colin Nish and Colin Larkin remain sidelined as they work their way back to full fitness following respective knee injuries. Hartlepool, who sacked manager Mick Wadsworth earlier this month, have lost their last three league games and have not won any of their last seven matches at Victoria Park. Steven Gillespie returns to the Colchester squad. The striker missed last Saturday`s 4-1 victory over Bury due to a one-match ban but is back in the frame to face a managerless Pools side who have lost their last three games and nine out of their previous 12 in all competitions. Despite Gillespie`s return, however, Us boss John Ward has admitted he will be hard pushed to make any changes to his starting XI after the emphatic triumph over the Shakers, arguably United`s best home performance of the campaign. Midfielder Karl Duguid came in for his first start of the season and duly grabbed a brace amid a man-of-the-match performance. Duguid was one of three changes, with full-back Michael Rose and fellow midfielder Lloyd James also set to hold on to their starting berths. John-Joe O`Toole returned to the bench on his comeback after groin surgery and will again hope to make the matchday 16. Defender Pat Baldwin has resumed training and is also pushing for involvement having finally recovered from his fractured toe. Winger Ashley Vincent remains in the treatment room for a couple of weeks nursing his hamstring tear.

Match Report

Pools slump again Miserable Hartlepool lost their eighth successive game at Victoria Park as Colchester secured a 1-0 win. A single strike, prodded in from close range by Anthony Wordsworth, proved decisive as the Us won their second game in a row. Pools, under caretaker boss Micky Barron, started brightly and James Poole lobbed inches wide from 20 yards. But the visitors went close when Karl Duguid stabbed wide from six yards when he met a Kayode Odejayi flick. Ian Henderson then drifted a close-range effort wide before he was denied by the legs of goalkeeper Scott Flinders. But the goal came after 36 minutes. Brian Wilson's floated ball drifted over the defence and, after his shot was kept out by Flinders, Wordsworth scrambled it home from inside the six-yard area. Pools went close again on half-time but Antony Sweeney's ball rolled across the face of goal.
