Rush says home and away's a great job

Exeter City 1
Hartlepool United 1

A NEW season is bringing mixed fortunes for David Rush's two clubs. The young striker's home club Sunderland are strug- gling to find their form while his temporary team ma- tes are amazing everyone with their successful start to life in Division Three. Saturday summed up the difference between the two sides.

"That's a bad result for Sunderland," Rush said when he heard about the Roker- men's defeat-while he celebrated another good away point for Hartlepool "But its still early in the season and the lads can bounce back." Rush is much more pleased with Hartlepool's current form. "They are going really well and I think they will get promotion. "Confidence is high and the lads are playing good football. "They have seen nothing yet to worry them and they will be in the play-offs this season I really believe that."

Pool battled back well after going a goal behind when Scott Daniels headed in after 61 minutes. Just three minutes later Rush saw his fierce drive handled near the line by Andy Cook and Pool skipper Paul Baker scored with a pen- alty.
