Their form has been poor leading up to this game so they will be determined to get something from us. I suspect we will struggle against them and may lose.

It's a good chance to see if we have learned anything from the Eastleigh game. Next two games are against two [currently] struggling teams and a maximum points haul will keep us well in with the pack.

We're back on an even keel and two decent performances will build confidence going into the Sutton game. We'll know what we're about in three games time.

Absolute smash and grab. They must be gutted to a man.

Could so very easily have been an embarrassment on a biblical scale and if we perform like that against a top three side we will get a spanking.

But we're still making life in this league difficult for ourselves, mainly by doing the same things we have been doing since our slide into oblivion started many moons ago.

I had a feeling Barrow would not be push overs and so they proved, still its another three precious points. Solihull Moors next up, now if that is not an accident waiting to happen I dont know what is.

Pools won - get over it!

Barrow were a BIG physical side who played hoofball throughout, in previous seasons - perhaps even the first 6 matches of this - Pools would have capitulated to their tactics but the squad seem to be more ready to battle than for a long time.

Billy 2 Dogs is spot on in his assessment. Woods admittedly cracking finish saved Harrison from a mauling by the fans and gave him an opportunity to verbally paper over the cracks that were exposed for all to see for the majority of the previous 95 minutes. OP is also correct in his assertion that the squad is prepared to get stuck in and battle to the death, a quality that has not been in evidence for several years and if applied last season may have preserved the club's EFL status.

However the fact is that Pools were very, very fortunate to take three points from this encounter when a point apiece would probably have represented a fair outcome.

OK so there was only one side trying to play football but the chronic lack of ability across the Pools squad is painfully obvious. It is commendable that effort and stamina is to some extent making up for quality but sooner or later we are going to be exposed for what we currently are i.e a bottom half of the table outfit that could easily get dragged into the usual end of season relegation battle that takes place whichever league your club happens to be in.

We are grinding out results away from home but we dont seem to have worked out a way of playing at home. Barring the Maidstone game, we have struggled at home all season. Is it a question of tactics, systems, motivation or fear of failure? I wouldnt know, but unless we solve this puzzle we are looking at a mid table finish at best.
