Scunthorpe 0-2 Hartlepool

Scunthorpe 0-2 Hartlepool

Hartlepool kept up their fine away record with a 2-0 win at Scunthorpe.

Antony Sweeney went close with an early header before striker Andy Monkhouse fired Pools ahead on 21 minutes with an 18-yard shot into the bottom corner.

Mick Wadsworth's men then struck again 13 minutes from time when Sweeney headed home at the near post from a cross by Evan Horwood.

That condemned Scunthorpe, booed off by their own fans at half-time, to their third home defeat of the season.

The visitors also went close with an excellent long-range effort from James Poole, tipped over by Sam Slocombe, while Monkhouse headed wide with the goal at his mercy.

Wadsworth's side have now lost just once on their travels in nine matches this season.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Scunthorpe United boss Alan Knill told BBC Radio Humberside:

"I don't play the game, I put the team out. We do all the organisation, then it really is about the players once they get on the pitch, but obviously I take responsibility being the manager.

"I was surprised today, its been difficult from day one. It usually takes time but unfortunately as a football manager you don't get that time but we'll have to wait and see.

"It's for us all to be honest and go we are really not doing enough."

Hartlepool United head coach Mick Wadsworth tells BBC Tees:

"We've let our home fans down but thankfully our away form has kept us in contention.

"It's not easy to win games away from home regularly but we seem to do it.

"It will turn at home, our performance was OK, but the spirit and endeavour was excellent, so if we convert that with energy and intensity we've shown we'll be OK."
