On the Up

Another tremendous second half show got Pools the vital points against a talented and very well organised Exeter City ...
The visitors had won eleven away game this season and you could see why in the first half. They defended intelligently, and were willing to concede possession knowing they had the pace and the firepower to hit Pools on the break.
They did that after 14 minutes and were content to defend that lead.
However, they didn't bargain on a rejuvenated Pools with the likes of Rhys Oates working their socks off. Hard work eventually gets its reward and it came with three excellent goals to leave City stunned.
The excellent Lewis Allessandra got the first from an acute angle when an out of sorts Nathan Thomas put in a weak cross cum shjot, Fiortunately, it found its way to beyond the far post where Alessandra made the very best of his opportunity.
Padraid Amond got the second when he belted the ball home with his left foot to stun the visitors, and then Alessandra added the icing to the cake in injury time.
But perhaps the best thing about the whole afternoon was the performance of 17 year old sub Kenton Richardson who came on after half an hour for the injured Kavanagh. He is a real prospect.
