SWEDISH trialist Samuel Adjei strengthened his claims for a deal at Victoria Park after scoring during a man-of-the-match display for Hartlepool United reserves.
The 20-year-old, who has been training at Pools for three weeks, was the stand-out performer for Micky Barron’s second-string at Hull City and broke the deadlock not long after half-time with a smart finish from Nathan Buddle’s centre.
Paul Johnson was the scorer of the second as he rose to power home Nathan Luscombe’s corner-kick, and Barron admits it was a strong team effort.
“It was excellent,” he sounded, “It’s the best performance we have seen all season.”
