Hartlepool United drew 0-0 with Newport County at Rodney Parade to continue their recent revival.

Pools had gone into the game hoping to make it three straight League Two wins, but had to settle for a point after another decent performance.

Craig Hignett's side were hoping to build on the 3-1 victories over Barnet and Dagenham & Redbridge.

Jake Gray was lively in attack for Pools, hitting the side netting at the start of the second half, and forcing the home goalkeeper Joe Day into a save late on.

Pools were by far the better side, with Trevor Carson in their goal only being called upon a handful of times, dealing comfortably with what was thrown at him.

In the end, it was a deserved point for Hignett’s men, who move up to 21st in the table.
