Hartlepool Utd win an record-breaking eighth consecutive league game, a last minute goal from on-loan striker Darryl Duffy is enough to take all the points. The Pools have also not conceded a goal for the same length of time. The Posh players clearly fail to settle with some strange tactical decisions that sees Adam Newton in centre of the midfield, Simon Yeo on the left-wing and Shane Huke on the right. Danny Wilson is clearly left satisfied with the result, “I thought it was nothing less than we deserved because we totally dominated the game from start to finish.”
