Football News

Hartlepool made it five successive victories with a demolition job on Oldham, winning 4-2.

Mick Wadsworth's side were rampant as they moved right into play-off contention, but they fell a goal down after 18 minutes, as Oumare Tounkara rolled his pass into the feet of Dale Stephens, who finished low from 20 yards.

Pools levelled from the spot after Jean Yves Mvoto handled and Neil Austin slotted in their first penalty of the season.

They took the lead after 44 minutes, Peter Hartley volleying home Evan Horwwood's free-kick from close range.

Ritchie Humphreys turned in from six yards after Leon McSweeney headed back a deep James Brown cross as the hosts took control.

And Antony Sweeney's ninth goal of the season - a close-range finish from a long Steve Haslam free-kick sealed a comprehensive win.

Mvoto got one back after 81 minutes with a header off the underside of the bar but the damage had been done.
