Beavers make it 6 straight wins
Adam Coombes’ debut goal enough for 3 points...
Hampton extended their unbeaten run to 13 with a 6th straight win, as they controlled the game from start to finish, only a lack of cutting edge in front of goal preventing a bigger margin.
The Beavers had the most of the possession in the first half but were not able to make it count as Poole Town were defending resiliently, meaning Hutchings was not tested, he did not have to make a save until close to half time despite all the Hampton possession.
The first clear chance fell to the visitors on 38 minutes against the run of play as Jamie Whisken’s shot forced a full length save from Hampton keeper Sam Howes.
Hampton finally got a shot on target just before the break as loan signing Adam Coombes danced his way through the Poole defence, but the shot was straight at Hutchings.
The Beavers came out in the second half with a positive manner and soon opened the scoring.
Bradley Hudson-Odoi’s cross from the left hand side hung in the air and Coombes reacted quickest to head the ball into the net, inches above the ground at the near post.
Poole’s best chance came with literally seconds on the clock with Warren Bentley’s late header but it drifted wide in the drizzle to leave Hampton striding on towards the top of the table
