Hartlepool   3 - 0   Walsall

Highlights - Hartlepool 3-0 Walsall

Hartlepool 3-0 Walsall

Hartlepool got their first home win of the season as they eased past a Walsall side offered little goal threat.

Andy Monkhouse got the opening goal after racing into the area and shooting low past keeper Rene Gilmartin.

Monkhouse extended the lead on 50 minutes when he drilled in a low shot from 16 yards out.

Colin Larkin grabbed the third when he beat the offside trap before calmly lobbing the ball over Gilmartin to score his first goal for Hartlepool.
