Hartlepool United 3-1 Maidstone United

Hartlepool United made it back-to-back wins with victory over Maidstone at Victoria Park.

Defender Keith Watson scored his first goal for Hartlepool, converting Lewis Hawkins' delivery after Maidstone scrambled to clear a corner.

Michael Ledger headed just wide as Hartlepool threatened to make it 2-0, but Scott Loach had to be alert at the other end as Maidstone livened up before the break.

Second-half strikes from Jonathan Franks and Connor Simpson made it comfortable for the hosts, before Johan ter Horst grabbed a late consolation for Maidstone.
