Reserves Finish With Loss
Calum Russell came in for James Bennett whilst Joe Lamplough replaced Jamie Devitt. None of the first-team squad was involved, meaning the reserve side was made up of City's youth players.
With the Tigers struggling to produce anything up-front during the first-half, it was no surprise as the teams went in tied goal-less at half-time.
Hartlepool took the lead in the fifty-seventh minute when Martin Young drove in a shot from a half cleared free-kick.
The defeat means the Tigers have now lost any hope of claiming the Pontins Holiday Division One East title.
