Match Preview

Sweeney blow for Pools Hartlepool will be without midfielder Antony Sweeney for their opening home game of the season. Sweeney, Pools' leading goalscorer last season, was forced out in the closing stages of normal time in the Carling Cup penalty shootout defeat to Sheffield United in midweek with a groin strain. First-team coach Mick Wadsworth has plenty of options to cover for Sweeney, with Paul Murray and summer signing Nathan Luscombe in the reckoning for a place in the starting line-up. Wadsworth will still be without strike pair James Brown and Colin Larkin, who have yet to feature for Pools this season due to respective ankle injuries. Larkin returned to full training this week but is not ready, while another forward, James Poole, is hoping to make his first start of the season. Wadsworth has no other new injury or suspension problems. Walsall will be without suspended midfielder Adam Chambers. The 30-year-old summer signing was shown a straight red card for a dangerous challenge just 12 minutes into Tuesday's 3-0 Carling Cup defeat to Middlesbrough and begins a three-match ban. Aside from the absence of Chambers, Saddlers boss Dean Smith has a fully-fit squad to choose from as they look to build on their opening-day win against Leyton Orient. Striker Will Grigg missed the Middlesbrough defeat as he was away on international duty with Northern Ireland Under-21s and is likely to come straight back into the starting line-up. That could mean Ryan Jarvis, who made his full debut against Middlesbrough in Grigg's place, will have to make do with a place on the bench.

Match Report

Red mist at Pools Hartlepool and Walsall played out a 1-1 draw after both were reduced to 10 men for more than half the game. Pools Nathan Luscombe and Andy Butler of Walsall were red-carded as both went in for a 50-50 ball. The Saddlers took a third-minute lead, Jon Macken slotting in low from the penalty spot after Paul Murray was guilty of putting a high boot in on Will Grigg. But it did not take Hartlepool long to level. From a long punt by goalkeeper Scott Flinders, opposite number Jimmy Walker was beaten by a wicked bounce and could only push the ball up in the air for striker Colin Nish to tap over the line. But then came the controversy as referee Paul Tierney flashed the cards on 42 minutes. Flinders save twice from Richard Taundry while Pools' beat chance came when substitute James Poole saw his shot kept out by Walker.
