Scott Loach reveals the mental and physical changes that are improving his Hartlepool United career

Four goals in his 11 games this season and two in his last four.

Pools will again have to contend with an in-form striker this weekend as Dayle Southwell lines up for Halifax.

If there’s one area Pools have been strong it’s at the back, with just goals conceded this campaign. Central to that has been the form of trio Carl Magnay, Myles Anderson and Peter Kioso.

Anderson is the proper out and out defender Pools have been crying out for in recent years.
