Substitute Danny Hylton grabbed the winner as Oxford United beat Hartlepool and go top of League Two.

Hartlepool midfielder Jake Gray hit the bar from 20 yards and was also involved in a penalty claim after a push by Johnny Mullins.

John Lundstram had a chance saved for the U's by Trevor Carson before Mikael Mandon nearly put the home side ahead.

Oxford scored from a counter-attack as Alex MacDonald crossed perfectly for Hylton to finish.
