Speaking to the Nottingham Evening Post, Dearden said "I don't know if it was a penalty or not. My lads say it wasn't but their lads say it was. Whatever, it was the major decision of the game.

"What really disappointed me was my players were congratulating the keeper on saving the penalty instead of following the ball. But Hartlepool are the form team in the league at the moment and we gave them a game.

"The conditions deteriorated but we stuck at it and had the better chances. I have a big job on here and no one will be grafting harder than me and the players to do it.

"There is no point in heads going down. If we play like we did until the end of the season then no danger, we'll be okay."
