Central League: Hartlepool United 1 Walsall 5

3:57 pm Tuesday, 24 April 2018  
Here is our match update from Tuesday afternoon's Central League clash between Hartlepool United and Walsall.
Ahead of this afternoon's match John Ward's mid-table Saddlers were most recently in action last week in a clash which saw a strong side defeat Grimsby Town by one-goal-to-nil as Ben Kendrick was on hand to give his side the lead mid-way through the second-half.

Hartlepool sat near the foot of the Central League table having lost six of their nine fixtures, and were keen to get more points on the board as they welcomed Walsall to Victoria Park later today.

The match didn't begin too well for the Pools as the visitors bagged the game's opening goal at around the midway point of the first-half as Ethan Freemantle was on hand to head the ball home from a Jordon Sangha corner kick.

Hartlepool went on to level the scores twelve minutes after the Saddlers' opener as trialist Andre-Vasile Ardelean slotted home from Ryan Robinson's neat cross. That would be the final goal of the opening forty-five minutes as the sides reached the break level pegging.

The Saddlers continued to push for another goal and were soon rewarded as they went back into the lead early in the second-half as young striker Cameron Peters headed the the ball home to put his side back on course for three welcome points.

Walsall further extended their lead soon after as Peters secured his second and the Saddlers' third goal of the game, a superb start to the second-half for John Ward's side as they look to head to their final few games in a good run of form.

The visitors continued to dominate their opponents and would go on to secure their fourth and fifth goals of the game before the referee brought the match to an end as youth prospect Dylan Parker chipped in with his first of the match before Cameron Peters completed his hat-trick. A dominant display from the young Saddlers side as they more than deserve their victory.
