Another Defeat Leaves Hartlepool Cut Adrift
The gap between Hartlepool and the rest of the division continues to widen after defeat at Yeovil.
With the game barely underway, the home side took a seventh minute lead as Joe Edwards put the ball past Scott Flinders.
Barron's men failed to register a single shot on target until well into the second half when Marek Stech tipped James Poole's drive over the bar before Peter Hartley and Sam Collins wasted good chances.
Pools had the ball in the net midway through the half but Antony Sweeney's goal was chalked off for offside, at the other end Flinders had to be in good form to deny Edwards, Paddy Madden and Daniel Johnson after the keeper had spilled a cross.
The game ended in defeat for Pools and with Bury and Scunthorpe both recording wins, Pools ended the afternoon six points adrift of the rest of the division.
Coventry, positioned directly above the drop zone and visitors to Victoria Park next weekend, now have over twice as many points as hapless Hartlepool.
