Hartlepool were beaten 5-0 by Cambridge in League 2 on Saturday.
A second half capitulation condemned Hartlepool to a Cambridge mauling at Victoria Park. All five goals came in the second period including four in the space off 19 minutes as the pressure increased on Craig Hignett.
Cambridge had the chance to take a first half lead when Toto Nsiala brought down Luke Berry. However, Trevor Carson ensured Hartlepool went into the break on level terms when he saved Berry’s spot kick.
Carson was beaten for the first time early in the second half when James Dunne fired in. Goals from Berry, Leon Legge and Uche Ikpeazu followed as Cambridge took control. The fifth came two minutes from time when substitute Max Clark got in on the act with his effort deflected past the Northern Ireland international.
This 5-0 defeat followed up the 4-0 thrashing by Port Vale in the FA Cup a week earlier.
