GARY Liddle has bemoaned Hartlepool United’s lack of luck in front of goal as they extended their scoreless streak at Victoria Park to nearly seven hours.

For the sixth time in eight matches – and the fourth on the spin at home – Pools failed to find the back of the net during yesterday’s stalemate with Brentford.

But Liddle is adamant a change in penalty-box fortune will spark a flurry of goals.

“We felt as if we’d played some of the best passing football we’d done all season during the first half yesterday,” said the midfielder.

“But again, we didn’t create very much. It’s that final pass or shot which just isn’t coming off for us.

“It’s okay putting all of those passes together but if it comes to nothing then it’s not very good, is it?

“We just need that little bit of luck.”
