Full-time: Pools 2-0 Notts County

85: GOAAAAALLLLLLLLLL!!!!! BENNETT BLASTS HOME FOLLOWING A CORNER

Two in two for the striker.

77: Roberts goes off injured, Notts County down to 10 after making all of their substitutes

73: Jamie Sterry moves into the midfield three

73: First change for Pools - Luke Armstrong makes way for Ryan Donaldson

70: Second and third changes for Notts County - Callum Roberts replaces Jordan Barnett and Dion Kelly-Evans comes on for Enzio Boldewijn

64: Reeves blasts narrowly wide

A decent attack from Notts sees Reeves drill a powerful effort just past the left post. Ravas was diving and may have had it covered anyway but a good effort.

63: Reeves shoots wide from 25-yards

54: Liddle picks up a yellow card as Notts County look to break

52: Bennett forces Slocombe into a decent save

Plenty of venom on that shot from Bennett as his 25-yard drive is tipped over.

49: Pools make the mess of a free-kick

Ferguson goes to play it short to Featherstone but there’s a miscommunication as the ball rolls out for a throw-in.
