Carlisle United 3-3 Hartlepool United

Jordan Hugill
Jordan Hugill scored twice for Hartlepool, who bounced back from 3-0 down to seal a point

League Two survivors Hartlepool fought back from 3-0 down to draw at Carlisle.

Backed by 2,000 fans in fancy dress, Pools' celebrations for saving Football League status seemed ruined when Carlisle scored three without reply.

Kyle Dempsey scored from 20 yards, Steven Rigg turned in a back-post cross and Jason Kennedy headed the third.

However, Jordan Hugill scored twice after the break for Pools, either side of Michael Duckworth's spectacular solo strike, to seal a remarkable point.
