Hartlepool United 0-2 Exeter City

Exeter ended their season on a high with a convincing win at Hartlepool.

The visitors took the lead after Jimmy Keohane curled his shot in off the underside of the crossbar.

David Wheeler added a second before the break when he latched onto a long Liam Sercombe pass and rounded keeper Scott Flinders to tap in.

Pools had a chance to get one back from the penalty spot but Jack Compton's penalty was well saved by keeper Christy Pyn.
