Hartlepool   4 - 2   Oldham

Hartlepool 4-2 Oldham

Hartlepool defeated Oldham to record their fifth successive victory and move to within a point of the play-offs.

Dale Stephens fired the Latics ahead from 20 yards but the hosts levelled through Neil Austin's penalty, after Jean-Yves Mvoto's handball in the area.

Peter Hartley's volley put Pools in front before Ritchie Humphreys extended the lead, shooting in on the turn.

Antony Sweeney's tap-in made it 4-1, before Mvoto grabbed a late consolation as his header went in off the bar.


Oldham player-manager Paul Dickov told BBC Radio Manchester:
"We were a little bit rusty in places. Maybe our game at times wasn't as sharp as we normally are but you've got to give Hartlepool credit.

"It's disappointing from our point of view but we kept going and creating chances and that's all I ever ask from the boys as disappointed as I am.

"At 1-0 we were playing ever so well. They hadn't threatened at all, then they get the equaliser and get their tails up after that."
