Loan watch: Lynch on target

by Kate Smith

Winger notches first league goal.

Sunderland loan star Craig Lynch scored his first senior goal in Hartlepool’s game at Colchester United.

Lynch gifted Pools an early lead with his sixth minute strike. 

It was a case of right time, right place for the forward as he pounced on an error by Craig Eastmond to slot the ball into the top right corner of the goal. 

However, Neale Cooper’s side could not hold on and a spirited fight back from United saw them run out 3-1 winners. 

Ahmed Elmohamady was also on the end of a 3-1 defeat. 

The Egyptian, who is currently on loan with Championship side Hull City, played a full 90 minutes as the Tigers were overturned by Peterborough. 

Elsewhere, young stopper was on the bench as his side, Chesterfield, played out a 1-1 home draw with Torquay.
