Wycombe 5 Hartlepool Utd 0: Away-day embarrassment for Pools

Have your say

Hartlepool United were embarrassed at Wycombe Wanderers as the league’s bottom club smashed five without reply, writes Craig Hope.

The Chairboys equalled their biggest-ever league win thanks to goals from Charlton Athletic loanees Paul Hayes (2) and Gary Doherty and a brace from man-of-the-match Stuart Beavon.

Boss Neale Cooper physically hauled several of his players from the pitch when the whistle sounded for the end of the first half – with Pools three down – and he acted by replacing Steve Haslam with Adam Boyd during the interval.

But nothing changed and two further goals arrived in the second half.
