NO luck yesterday and sticking closer to home in the shape of a top-of-the-table National League fixture.
SALFORD CITY v HARTLEPOOL UNITED (7.45pm)
This one sees a 4th-placed Salford side play host to Hartlepool who sit just 2 point behind in 5th spot.
It’s been a cracking start for both with Salford having been a real force at home netting 3-1-3-3-2 team goals in successive matches at The Peninsula Stadium.
Despite their dominance, they have been susceptible to conceding goals having done so in 7 of their last 8 matches on home soil – every chance that Hartlepool can exploit this and they have failed to score in just 1 of their own last 8 consecutive matches as they look to maintain a 9-match unbeaten run.
Ought to be a genuinely good game of football this and it’s not just Adam Rooney who has a bit of class. Nathan Pond and new signing Danny Lloys are amongst Salford’s other star men and Hartlepool have plenty of their own … can’t see it being a dull encounter.
