Hartlepool were beaten by Newport in League 2 on Saturday.

Newport closed the gap between them and safety to just two points with this victory also dragging Hartlepool back into the relegation battle as Dave Jones’ first game in charge ending with a 3-1 defeat.

The Exiles’ win – who are unbeaten in three but recorded a first win in 10 – left Pools just five points outside of the relegation zone.

Padraig Amond’s goal for Hartlepool came deep into added time at the end of the game with it nothing more than a consolation with Pools already well beaten.
