Hartlepool United’s Andrew Davies showed he can be more than a defender and he has set himself a double figure target for the season, say The Northern Echo.

The Hartlepool United captain scored two strong headers to end a run of three successive home draws.

He then set his sights on scoring ten this campaign.

If the delivery into the area can be as crisp as it was on Saturday then there’s no reason why he can’t.

But after netting two, he should have had three. As he ran to meet another tasty delivery in front of the Town End, he was ready to take the ball home. First, however, he needed to connect and he lost sight of it.

“I genuinely did fancy myself when I went up,’’ he admitted.

“I thought if the ball comes in I can get on the end of it, but it just got caught in the sun and I ended up having a volley as well. I don’t know what I’d have done if I’d scored a hat-trick, it would have been funny whatever I’d have done.”
