Exeter City 1-0 Hartlepool United

Christian Ribeiro
Exeter's Christian Ribeiro scored his first goal of the season

Exeter sealed all three points against Hartlepool United thanks to Christian Ribeiro's dramatic injury-time winner.

David Wheeler found the back of the net for the Grecians but it was disallowed after Tom Nichols was judged offside.

The visitors could have taken the lead after Jordan Tillson fouled Rhys Oates but Rakish Bingham saw his penalty saved by Bobby Olejnik.

And Ribeiro made Hartlepool pay late on when he unleashed a shot from a tight angle to seal the win.
