AS POOLS SINK TO A LOW EBB
“I can go through everything, I can go through goals. Anything would have been a bonus and we had a right kick up the backside. We have a very important game on Monday in front of our own fans.’’
After dropping two points and drawing with Northampton last week, the Brewers weren’t going to make the same mistake again.
They should, however, have been trailing. Pools striker Marlon Harewood was put through on goal and, one on one with Dean Lyness put his finish into the keepers legs.
The chance was gone and with it the game.
Defender Ian Sharps played a lovely ball from deep into the area and striker Billy Kee got there ahead of Sam Collins to head past Andy Rafferty.
The second goal came when Jimmy Phillips was teed up in the area to curl past Rafferty from the edge of the area.
And they saved the best until last, Billy Kee drilling a low free-kick from 30 yards into the bottom corner. It was as easy as they come and boss Gary Rowett admitted: “We controlled the game from the start and never really looked in trouble. They had one or two shots on goal in 90 minutes and that was it really.
“We were god on the ball and our front four were a threat on goal all day.
“It was nice to come out and put away the chances and score more than one which hasn’t happened too often!
“We could have had more, we had lots in and around the box and it was a really good performance on the back of a disappointing one at Northampton.’’
