The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO - By Thomas Han­nah

BUR­TON and Hartle­pool are head­ing in op­po­site di­rec­tions and while the Brew­ers seek a move into League One, Pools look like rel­e­ga­tion fod­der.

They might be in the same di­vi­sion for now, but there looked like more than two di­vi­sions be­tween them. One bright, pow­er­ful and in­ven- tive, the other flat, slow and in­sipid.

Pools have lost six suc­ces­sive games and sit two points in front of the bot­tom two.

Their boss Colin Cooper re­fused to an­swer any ques­tions about this game or the non-per­for­mance of his play­ers.

In­stead he wanted to turn his at­ten­tions to Mon­day’s vi­tal home game with fel­low strug­glers More­cambe. “I’m not go­ing to make as­sess- ment and all I will say is we have a very im­por­tant game on Mon­day – that’s as much as I’m go­ing to say,’’ said Cooper.
