Hartlepool United 1-2 Bromley

Bromley made it three games unbeaten with a fine victory away at Hartlepool United.

The hosts have been gradually improving since the appointment of Craig Hignett, but had little answer to a fantastic away performance.

Marc-Anthony Okoye opened the scoring 30 minutes in, given plenty of time to pick his spot after a long throw made its way to him.

Luke Coulson made it two with a fine individual goal. A lofted ball forward found him, he beat the covering defender with a touch and unleashed a brilliant volley beyond Scott Loach.

Pools would have been further behind had Omar Bugiel not failed to score from six yards out.

Liam Noble fired in a terrific consolation late on in injury time, but it was too late.
