MICK Wadsworth admits his side could have doubled their goal tally but for better luck and finishing during last night’s 3-0 win at Harrogate Town.

The hosts somehow made it through to half-time with their clean sheet intact, largely thanks to the heroics of former Pools goalkeeper Mark Cook.

But a second-half wonder strike from Neil Austin got the ball rolling and, with Cook replaced soon after, Colin Nish and James Poole added two more to put a little bit of gloss on the scoreline.

However, given the attacking superiority exerted by his men, Wadsworth, pictured, was still a little disappointed not to have put the game to bed by the break.

“There were some good aspects from the game, but some bad too,” said the first-team coach after guiding his men to a fourth win on the spin.

“I thought we handled their side well and created a lot in the first half without having any luck – Colin Nish had enough chances for a hat-trick, but couldn’t have struck his shots any better, in fairness.”
