Hartlepool director of sport Chris Turner hailed "a superb performance" after his side cruised to a 3-0 victory at Oldham.

Goals from James Brown, Leon McSweeney and Denis Behan helped Pools remain unbeaten - and still to concede a goal - on the road this season.

"I am absolutely delighted. At no point did we just try to sit back, we took the game to them and on another night we could have scored more than three" said Turner.

"They were all good goals in different ways and, with the first, James Brown showed he is a wonderful talent who would get into any team in this division.

"Our aim at the start of the season was to finish higher than last year and pick up better away results, so in that sense I could not ask for any more.

"It says 'never say die' on our shirts and that is the attitude we are trying to instil in the players. You could see that in the second half because, even at 3-0 up, we were fighting all the way to keep our clean sheet."
