Story of the night: Sutton United 1-0 Hartlepool United – away day blues continue for poor Pools

Hartlepool United’s wait for an away point continued in League Two as they were beaten 1-0 at Sutton United on Tuesday evening.

Tuesday, 14th September 2021, 9:45 pm

Ben Goodliffe’s first half strike was enough to separate the sides at Gander Green Lane as Sutton made their dominance count.

It was a frustrating evening for Pools who struggled to get going until the final few minutes when Olofela Olomola and Jamie Sterry both saw headers go wide.

The defeat sees Pools drop to fifth in the League Two table.
