Half Time Report: Goalless between Notts County and Hartlepool

Joe Jones

Tuesday's League Two clash between Notts County and Hartlepool United at Meadow Lane is goalless at the break. 

The visitors won an early corner, which came to nothing, and before long Mark Cooper’s side got into the game and threatened through Jon Stead, whose early header at the back post was blocked before it could get to Izale McLeod, plus several efforts from Liam Noble.

Notts were solid at the back too, with Mike Edwards and Thierry Audel playing steadily and making sure several Hartlepool forays and half-chances were rendered harmless.

When Scott Loach was called into action, as he was in the 34th minute, he was steadfast in between the sticks and made sure his side would hang on to the clean sheet at half time.

In the 41st minute Rhys Oates burst into the box but his effort flew wide of Loach’s left-hand post as the half-time whistle blew on a scoreless scoreline.

Just need to take a little longer when it comes to finishing, build up play is good but just need that spark. Hartlepool have the potential to trouble us, so scoring early in the second half would be helpful for Notts.
