Allen axed after Pools defeat

Published Add your comment

Notts County boss Martin Allen was sacked shortly after a 3-0 defeat at Hartlepool.

Allen had expressed his disappointment in his players after an Antony Sweeney double and an Andy Monkhouse goal gave Pools all three points.

Speaking prior to his sacking, Allen said: "We've averaged a good return in recent games - been solid and hard to beat. We passed well but didn't have a threat in the final third. They looked like scoring each time they went in our box and we got what we deserved."
