York City 0 Hartlepool United 0
HARTLEPOOL United collected a first point of the season - and a first clean sheet to go with it - in a 0-0 draw at York.
Backed by an impressive 1,714 travelling fans for the game classed Pools' derby, Colin Cooper's side had the better of the game, but lacked a killer instinct in front of goal.
With on loan Christian Burgess strong and solid at the back, alongside Jack Baldwin, Pools had a solid base.
Simon Walton and Bradley Walker got the better of things in midfield, while Steve Howard made clear his intention from the off with a lively performance.
Howard and James Poole both felt they should have been awarded penalties in the first-half.
Their best chances came later on. Jack Compton sliced horribly wide from an inviting position, while Darren Holden's ball into the area caused problems but was nodded off the line, before Andy Monkhouse's far post header beat keeper Michael Ingham, only to be cleared off the line by defender Chris Smith.
