Match Preview

Pools set to Gamble on Joe Hartlepool caretaker boss Mick Wadsworth could welcome back midfielder Joe Gamble for the home clash against Walsall. Gamble made his return by playing 30 minutes in the reserves and could make the bench. James Brown has been absent for the last three games and returned to training on Thursday but the Walsall game is likely to come too soon for him. Ritchie Humphreys will continue to play as a make-shift striker. Fellow striker Adam Boyd injured an ankle in the reserves this week and is doubtful while Scott Flinders underwent thumb surgery this week and joined fellow goalkeeper Andy Rafferty on the sidelines with on-loan Jake Kean continuing between the sticks. Neil Austin will keep his place at full-back after completing 90 minutes against Exeter. Walsall will be without captain Darren Byfield for the clash. The striker has been ruled out of action for at least two weeks having landed awkwardly on his knee during last weekend's 2-1 loss to Swindon - a result which inflicted a fifth successive defeat on the Saddlers. On-loan Wolves midfielder David Davis also limped off during the encounter but has trained all week and should be fine. Chris Hutchings' only other absentees remain Steve Jones (ankle) and Richard Taundry (knee), who have been missing since late August and still do not look like returning to the fold just yet. Struggling Hartlepool are also winless in three and still waiting for their first taste of success on home soil, handing the Saddlers cause for optimism as they look to end their wretched run of form.

Match Report

Monkhouse earns Pools points Andy Monkhouse earned Hartlepool a first home win of the season after a 2-1 victory over Walsall. Monkhouse headed in after 56 minutes to engineer victory at the fourth time of asking, but for the Saddlers the misery continues after their sixth game without a win. Yet the visitors took the lead after nine minutes when bout of head tennis inside the home penalty area led to Julian Gray steering a volley past keeper Jake Kean. Paul Murray look like he had levelled but goalkeeper Jon Brain saved superbly low to his right, before Antony Sweeney's close-range effort was somehow kept off the line by Brain. Sweeney did level on 44 minutes, though, when his angled overhead kick went over Brain into the far corner. Monkhouse's goal, a free header from an Evan Horwood free-kick put Pools in front after the break and the left-winger had another chance from a similar position soon after, but nodded over. The Saddlers' twice went close to a late leveller. First after 86 minutes, Kean saved low to keep out a drive from Reuben Reid, before he raced off his line to smother the striker when he was in on goal.
