Hartlepool remain rooted to the foot of the league 2 table, whereas Wycombe Wanderers maintained their position at the top of the table after a win at Victoria Park on Saturday afternoon.

A 3-1 defeat, after a penalty miss proved costly, means that Paul Murray is still seeking his first win as Pools boss.

There was little in it for the opening half an hour until a Paul Hayes cross was powered past Scott Flinders by Paris Cowan-Hall (33) with the real turning point coming shortly after when a penalty opportunity was spurned. Marlon Harewood was fouled in the box to give Neil Austin a chance to level things up but he blasted his penalty over.

As time went on Pools had to commit more men forward and this enable Wycombe to counter-attack with this seeing the lead doubled with less than 15-minutes to play when Matt Bloomfield (76) scored. Only a matter of minutes later Alfie Mawson (79) was left unmarked to head home the third and secure the points.

Harewood’s (84) late strike was nothing more than a consolation goal.
