Hartlepool secured a 3-2 win over Morecambe in League 2 on Friday.

A cracker to end the year at Victoria Park saw Hartlepool give the home faithful something to cheer – even if Pools fans had a worrying moment or two before the end!

A three goal lead – after goals from Padraig Amond, Billy Paynter and Nicky Featherstone within the opening 25 minutes – was reduced but Morecambe’s second came deep into added time.

The first win in five took Hartlepool five points clear of danger and above the Shrimps after a seventh defeat in 10.
