16min - And Carroll goes close again just moments later, this time it's Dyer who tees up the young striker but his side-footed effort from 12 yards out is saved by Lee-Barrett.


15min - Andy Carroll has a glorious chance to open the scoring when Dyer springs Carr free on the right, his delicate chip finds the 18-year-old striker unmarked at the far post and he heads back across goal aiming for the far corner, keeper Lee-Barrett denies Carroll his goal with a fisted clearance from the goal-line and Martins is unable to return the loose ball goalwards and Pools clear.


12min - Dyer breaks free in the area after out-foxing full-back Robson with a clever stepover and quick turn, his pull-back for Carroll doesn't have enough on it and Liddle manages to scramble the ball clear from inside the six-yard box.


10min - Martins cushions a header down for strike partner Andy Carroll and immediately sets off looking for the return pass, Carroll holds onto the ball a fraction too long before releasing the Nigerian and he is flagged offside.


7min - McCunnie forces a corner off the back-tracking Charles N'Zogbia and Humphrey's delivery is headed behind by Big Andy Carroll. The second flag-kick causes confusion inside United's area but it's Huntington who eventually hacks clear.


6min - Dyer and Barton combine in the right but the new midfielder's cross lacks direction and Lee-Barrett claims easily at the far post.


4min - Oba Martins' loose pass is seized upon by Antony Sweeney midway inside his own half and he charges 40 yards with the ball before letting fly towards Shay Given's goal, it's never troubling the Unted skipper and he plucks the ball from the air in what was the game's first effort on target.


Pools get the game underway with the Magpies defending the goal in front of the stand where the strong away following is housed.




JOEY Barton and David Rozehnal are both handed Newcastle United debuts as Sam Allardyce names his first starting eleven as Magpies manager.


Czech international Rozehnal partners Peter Ramage at the heart of United's defence, while £5.8m signing Barton lines up alongside Nicky Butt in the centre of midfield.


Shay Given will lead the Geordies out after celebrating ten years at the club this week.


Teenage striker Andy Carroll is paired with last season's top scorer Oba Martins in attack, with Kieron Dyer and Charles N'Zogbia on the flanks.


Completing the line-up are full-backs Stephen Carr and Paul Huntington.
