Hartlepool   3 - 0   Brentford

Hartlepool 3-0 Brentford

Hartlepool 3-0 Brentford

Nicky Forster's first game as full-time manager of Brentford ended in a heavy defeat at Hartlepool.

Andy Monkhouse opened the scoring when his shot came back off the underside of the crossbar but was adjudged to have crossed the line.

Monkhouse notched his fifth goal in six games when he drilled home from Antony Sweeney's lay-off to make it 2-0.

Pools keeper Scott Flinders saved well from Gary Alexander before Gary Liddle wrapped up the win from 12 yards.


Hartlepool United first-team coach Mick Wadsworth told BBC Tees:
"We said to the players before the game, if we win and it'll take some doing, three out of the next four, now two out of the next three, then the table will make interesting reading.

"The main thing we want is safety, that is what the chairman and (owners) IOR want, and I understand that.

"Once we get beyond that safety point, let's see what we can do."

Brentford manager Nicky Forster told BBC London 94.9:
"We were off the pace and don't think we competed well enough and were beaten by a team that were better than us.

"Adam Reid had a good introduction and was lively and punching above his weight.

"Charlie McDonald may be a doubt for Tuesday but as yet we don't know."
