Butterworth plaudits for Collins

Hartlepool United assistant boss Ian Butterworth has hailed goalscoring defender Sam Collins after Tuesday's 2-1 win against Huddersfield.

Collins, 30, arrived at Victoria Park in January and Butterworth believes the centre-back has made his mark on the side in such a short space of time.

"He's taken his goal great and he's added a bit of steel to the back four. He's a likeable lad," he told BBC Tees.

"He's a good character and he's got a good partnership with Michael Nelson."

The win was Pools' third in a row and Butterworth was also full of praise for the wingers who helped provide a balance to the side.

"Tony Sweeney on the right and Andy Monkhouse on the left have linked up well," he said.

"Tony works hard and was probably playing slightly out of position. They've done a good job tonight."
