Burnley held to 0-0 draw by Hartlepool

Hartlepool saw their League Two game at Accrington called off last night at the eleventh hour and this morning manager Ronnie Moore said he was pondering playing the first team in this game or certainly would not be playing a stronger team.

In the end, Hartlepool fielded a team which included six players with first team experience and it proved to be a tight game with few chances, particularly in the first half.

Twice Ntumba Massanka came close to a goal but Aiden O'Neill (pictured) came closest of all when his shot hit the post with a shot from outside the box.

The Burnley team was: "Danijel Nizic, Steven Hewitt, Shaun Hobson, Tom Anderson, Arlen Birch (Khius Metz), Josh Ginnelly, Brandon Wilson, Aiden O'Neill, Jamie Frost (Josh Dolling), Ntumba Massanka, Trialist (Renny Smith).
