Harrison Demands Reaction After Loss

A 4-0 away loss at Dover Athletic left Hartlepool United boss Craig Harrison far from happy.

The defeat at the Crabble Athletic Ground leaves the side 14th in the Vanarama National League table, writes Tom Feaheny.

“We gave poor goals away and that’s been the story of the last few weeks really. The last goal sums it up because it’s too easy,” Harrison said to the club's website.

“At times we’ve worked the ball in to the final third quite well but not taken the opportunity to get crosses in and get shots off. Their first goal was an early shot off by the players but we’ve got in to four or five positions similar to that and wasted them really by not having that little bit of quality."

Harrison once again acknowledged the fans who made the long trip and wants them to see the side win next weekend.

“The fans travelled down here in their numbers again. They were absolutely unbelievable and they deserve better than that. We need to give them something back next week.”

Their next game is in the FA Trophy where they take on Evo-Stik Premier side Workington.
