PAUL Murray says Hartlepool United can’t afford any more lapses of concentration.

Pools were less than three minutes from securing a 1-1 draw at the weekend when a long throw into the away box was flicked on and sub Harrison Dunk was afforded a free header to net the Cambridge winner.

“Maybe at the end the lads are thinking ‘we’ve got a great point here’,” Murray said.

“But you can’t think like that because look what happened.

“We can’t have it again so may be that was a great lesson.

“Conceding a sloppy goal three minutes from the end like that is something we have to stamp out.”
