Hartlepool 3-1 Yeovil

Hartlepool came from behind to secure a comfortable win over Yeovil.

The visitors took an early lead through Jon Obika who hooked a stunning volley into the top corner from 30 yards.

Adam Boyd equalised for the home side from close range after Yeovil failed to clear a corner before Sam Collins' low shot beat Stephen Henderson.

Substitute Colin Larkin sealed victory for the Pools with a neat finish at the near post, leaving Yeovil five points from the relegation zone.


Hartlepool United boss Mick Wadsworth told BBC Tees:"I think that puts the tin hat on our safety campaign and that's important but we don't want to finish there, we want to finish the season strongly.

"To beat a team three times in a season is very difficult. It was a cat and mouse tactical battle today but I think we came out on top in the end.

"I thought we played some really good football at times in the second half, we have some good passing moves and that combination between Andy (Monkhouse) and Evan (Horwood) has been very important for us this season."
