Scunthorpe 1-2 Hartlepool
23rd February 2013
Glanford Park

Scunthorpe’s League One survival bid was dented by a Glanford Park defeat against relegation rivals Hartlepool.

First half strikes from James Poole (20) and Jonathan Franks (37) left Hartlepool in complete control at the break.

The visitors continued to press in the second half and but for the bar would have scored again!

10-mninutes after coming on James Alabi (77) marked his debut, following his loan arrival from Stroke earlier in the week, with a goal to bring The Iron back into the game when he headed home.

An all important equaliser couldn’t be found with Scunthorpe beaten 2-1 ending a run of three successive home wins as Hartlepool took another step towards what would be a truly astonishing relegation survival.
