FC Halifax Town 1-1 Hartlepool United RECAP: Wait for away win continues for Dave Challinor's side
Hartlepool United drew 1-1 against 10-man Halifax Town at The Shay on Tuesday night.
Following three postponements, the match finally got under way as Mark Shelton’s early goal for Pools was cancelled out by Kieran Green’s late header before Danny Williams was sent off for Halifax.
The result keeps Pools third in the National League table as their poor away form extended to just one win in their last nine matches.
