Familiar Tale Gets Hignett the Hartlepool Heave-Ho; CRAWLEY TOWN 1 HARTLEPOOL UNITED 0


CRAIG HIGNETT has been sacked as Hartlepool United manager, as the club aim to stave off yet another relegation scrap.

For all the words, promise and hope that proceeded this season, the campaign is unravelling into an alltoo-familiar tale.

Saturday's pitiful defeat at Crawley Town was the final straw for chairman Gary Coxall, who yesterday lunchtime dumped the manager he appointed last February.

Even to create a few chances and scoring opportunities would have been nice.

Instead, as they did under Hignett (left), Pool played neat football, moved the ball around and across midfield at will, passed the ball for fun and didn't create a single opening of any goalscoring note.

Their only shot on goal came from Sean Kavanagh, a left wing-back signed on loan from Fulham. He tried his luck from 20 yards, an effort that almost beat keeper Glenn Morris at his near post.

And that was it as far as scoring chances came.

The goal came as Dean Cox, one of the lower division's better players over the years, was allowed to cut inside from the left onto his preferred right foot and cross for Crawley's top scorer James Collins to head in. …
