‘Massive’ win pleases Hartlepool United’s Ronnie Moore

2 February 2015

Hartlepool United manager Ronnie Moore hailed his players after a 'massive' 3-2 win over Plymouth Argyle.

A Jonathan Franks brace and a third from Scott Fenwick proved enough for Pools at Victoria Park despite a tense finish to the match as Argyle pulled back to within one in stoppage time soon after Kelvin Mellor felt he had been fouled in the penalty area.

It meant back-to-back home wins for a Pools side now seven points adrift of safety at the bottom of Sky Bet League 2.

Moore said: "This was a massive win.

"We were good first half and it was always going to be a right game and we were hanging on at the end.

"But I've got to praise [the players] for their effort, commitment and attitude.

"We went in front, it's not often we've been in the lead.

"But then we conceded a sloppy goal, got in front again and then had massive fortune with the penalty they didn't get.

"The dressing room was a bit upset because of other results but don't worry about other results because other teams will see our result and have a panic on."
