Hartlepool V Brentford, Saturday, 5.20pm
MILESEY won the single wars on Friday as he posted Borussia M'gladbach before we.
Hopefully my view added some insurance to the tip and Borussia duly won at a handy price.
I can't be accused of copying Milesey's single this time although Brentford are on the aways in my Record column which was finished by 6pm on Friday. Anyway here are Milesey's thoughts on the game.
Milesey's verdict: Hartlepool will play their football in League Two next season after being relegated on Tuesday night without even kicking a ball.
The Pools were cut miles adrift earlier this season but an impressive improvement in form saw them inch within just a handful of points of safety.
However, it was too little, too late for John Hughes’s men as Oldham’s victory during the week condemned them to the drop.
Now Hartlepool will just hope to build on a run of back-to-back victories in hopes of avoiding finishing in bottom spot.
This weekend they host a Brentford side who are just one point away from the automatic promotion places.
The Bees could have moved into the top two on Tuesday night but were held to a 2-2 draw with fellow promotion candidates Sheffield United to leave them just one behind Bournemouth and only three adrift of league leaders Doncaster.
Uwe Rosler’s men have suffered just one defeat in their last eight league matches but a lot of this is down to their dominant home form where they have won 14 and only lost two games all season.
Away from home they falter, winning on just one of their previous five trips. While that doesn’t stand them in good stead ahead of their trip to Victoria Park they will still fancy themselves to pocket the points against a deflated Hartlepool outfit.
