MATT Phillips got more valuable minutes under his belt yesterday playing for Pool’s second string.

The development squad beat a young French academy side 4-0 in horrendous weather at Squires Gate.

Tom Barkhuizen’s two goals were added to by Adam Dodd and James Caton on a soaking wet surface.

Phillips was in the line-up, having made his first start since November in in Saturday’s win at Wolves.

Pool: Kettings, Dodd, Bignot, Cross, Challinor, Caton, Phillips, Thompson, Menagh, Banvo, Barkhuizen.
