A LAST-minute goal from Pool saw them secure a point in a 4-4 draw at Featherstone Colliery on Saturday.

During the match, Pool struggled to maintain their shape and three enforced changes to the team did not help.

They were caught napping when Featherstone broke down the right finding enough space to finish well from a difficult angle.

Pool steadied themselves and levelled the scores when a long free-kick found Carlinhos Silva, his glancing header beating the keeper at his far post.

Pool's joy was short lived, as Featherstone regained the lead with a near carbon copy goal as their first.

As half-time approached, Pool had found their feet, and deservedly equalised again through a long-range effort by Edson Costa finding the top corner.

The second half was a closely fought affair, although Featherstone hit the post with their first attack, Pool were looking stronger, so when Ian Noble was brought down in the penalty area, he stepped forward to complete the job and give Pool a 3-2 lead.

Pool gave the ball away too often, and this resulted in a corner from which Featherstone levelled again, and when the home team made it four it was looking like another blank day for Pool.

Then with virtually the last action of the match a long throw in from Josh Wagstaff was headed on by Josh Waite into the corner of the net to give Pool the point they deserved.

Pool needed to win this match and despite the point, they find themselves deep in relegation danger in West Yorkshire League Division One.

This Saturday Pool visit high-flying Boroughbridge.

Field Reserves beat Pool Reserves 8-2 in the West Yorkshire League Trophy.

There could not be a bigger gulf between these two teams, Pool languishing at the bottom of Alliance Division Two, field at the top of Division One, and eventually it showed despite Pool putting in a good display.

Goals from Will Johnson and Ben Fawcett gave Pool some hope before class took its toll.
