Cooper wants wins

Hartlepool boss Colin Cooper is keen to return to winning ways following his side's 2-1 defeat to AFC Wimbledon.

Pools forward Luke James headed the visitors in front on the brink of half-time before Will Antwi nodded the Dons level in the 74th minute.

Substitute Danny Hylton then scored the winner on his debut two minutes later.

"The disappointing thing is their goalkeeper had all the saves to make other than early in the second half," said Cooper.

"Other than that first goal, we also had enough to finish the game off and allowed them to ease their way back into a game that was a million miles away.

"We played nice football - the sort I want to play. But our supporters will go away and not remember that.

"It was a bombardment and they admitted they were looking to do that and put us under pressure. As the pressure mounts, you make decisions that aren't the right ones.

"The only thing we said is when we get our noses in front we win games - this time we got in front and got pegged back.

"Hopefully that feeling won't leave the players and we will get back to winning games."
