Bignot on players on 'trigger' deals

White delight

Better, but..

Full time: Chester 1 Hartlepool 1

All square here after White goal salvages a point.

Booked

Kingsley James.

Pressure

Three added minutes, Hartlepool corner.

Saved

Hornby down well to save Cassidy effort after he had managed to run at defence.

Let off

Pools sub

Get in!

The Blues are level! Harry White’s persistence pays off as he bundles through and shoots high past Loach. 77 mins

GOAL! Chester 1 Hartlepool 1

HARRY WHITE!!! 77 mins

Well held

Good save from Hornby as Deverdics strike takes a wicked deflection. Well held.

All wrong

Superb cross-field pass from Crawford finds Halls who crosses for Archer but he gets header all wrong and ball drifts out to touchline.

Good chance

Blues come close to hitting back as Mahon finds Halls on the overlap, with the right back’s cross finding James at the far post unmarked, but his header flashed across goal and wide.

GOAL! Chester 0 Hartlepool 1

Disaster! Michael Woods pokes home after a scramble in the box. 62 mins.

Great tackle

Well over

Lucas Dawson wastes a great chance from free kick 20 yards out. Balloons it over.

Yellow card

Laing shown a yellow for bringing down Akintunde as he looked to break clear.

Wasteful

Blues far too profligate in possession so far. Giving it away needlessly.

Dragged wide

White breaks but effort is blocked and Crawford’s first time strike drags well wide.

Back at it

The second half is underway

Better

Blues been the better side and should hold the lead. Had a couple of great chances.
