Hartlepool United 0-0 Tranmere

Hartlepool and Tranmere shared the points after a goalless, scrappy game.

Tranmere's Cole Stockton intercepted a poor back pass but Pools goalkeeper Scott Flinders was quickly off his line to produce a fine save.

Home winger Ryan Brobbel blazed over from inside the box, and centre-back Janoi Donacien missed the target.

Abdulai Bell-Baggie then fired wide from 12 yards for Tranmere before grazing the crossbar with a powerful effort from a tight angle.
