Bury 1-0 Hartlepool United

Andrew Tutte's late goal lifted Bury into the play-off places and deepened Hartlepool's trouble at the bottom of League Two.

Tutte struck at the far post after a surging run and cross from Danny Mayor to break the hearts of Pools.

The visitors penned Bury in their own half before the break but Marvin Morgan and Scott Harrison missed chances.

And they were punished when the home side improved and Tutte found a way through the stubborn Pools defence.

Bury manager David Flitcroft told BBC Radio Manchester:

"We never looked like getting beaten today, it was a real solid performance. We certainly looked threatening in the second half which pleases me.

"I think the resurgence has been thanks to Popey (on-loan goalkeeper Nick Pope) coming in. He's outstanding for this league and he looks safe, solid, secure in his work.

"It really exudes a lot of confidence throughout the team and certainly the back four. He's been a big signing for us.

"You want to see Danny Mayor's run for the goal. He glides across and sets the goal up, incredible."
