Pools looked nothing like a bottom four side as they began the game with plenty of confidence and played some excellent football at the Keepmoat Stadium on Saturday.

But the home side gradually wore them down to snatch a half-time lead before dominating after the interval.

Jonathan Franks went close for Hartlepool before Rovers went ahead in the 35th minute with a super solo goal from Iain Hume to beat a couple of players on a jinking run before firing into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.

Pools never gave up the fight, but Rovers asserted their superiority when James Coppinger made it 2-0 in the 55th minute with a deflected shot that trickled over the line following good work by James Husband.

Rovers went close several times before Pools striker Steve Howard headed against the post at the other end after 77 minutes.

But the League One leaders rounded off a convincing display when Billy Paynter headed home in fine style following another splendid open cross from Husband nine minutes from time.

Alexis Sanchez: Really Not THAT Good

The backlash has begun: Why are Barca letting him go if he's any good? We have mails on Alexis Sanchez, Luis Suarez, the World Cup and the wonder of F365...

Stop Your Sobbing And Man Up...

Oh and honey, put the kettle on. We have more World Cup mails but it's mostly an orgasmic explosion at the signing of Alexis Sanchez. Could this be Arsenal's year?
