AS POOLS SINK TO A LOW EBB

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

“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.’’
