Southend were made to fight every inch of the way before beating 10-man Hartlepool 3-2 in their Coca-Cola League One clash.

Goalkeeper Arran Lee-Barrett was sent off for bringing down Theo Robinson as he chased a long ball from Franck Moussa. Lee Barnard converted the penalty in the 17th minute and moments later Franck Moussa scored a spectacular second.

Hartlepool got back into the game when Joel Porter was successful from the penalty spot in the 32nd minute after he himself had been upended by Damian Scannell. Southend scored a third just before the break through Robinson and Hartlepool displayed great spirit and pulled one back in the 62nd minute when Richie Jones provided the finishing touch to a cross from Andy Monkhouse.
