BACK AT FIELD MILL: Rakish Bingham has left Pools

HARTLEPOOL United have suffered the blow of losing striker Rakish Bingham who has been recalled by Mansfield Town.

Pools boss Ronnie Moore brought the forward in on loan with the hope of keeping him until the end of the season.

But the Stags inserted a clause to say they could recall the 21-year-old at any time and it is no great shock they want him back at Field Mill.

Bingham has shown up well for Pools, netting once in five appearances, and while he did not find the net on Saturday he played his part in the 3-2 win over Plymouth.

But the fact that Pools moved to seven points behind Mansfield in the League Two table in the process doubtless prompted the Stags to bring back their player.
