Hartlepool   3 - 0   Southend

Hartlepool 3-0 Southend

Hartlepool 3-0 Southend

On-loan striker Roy O'Donovan struck a clinical hat-trick as Hartlepool eased to a valuable win over Southend.

The Sunderland man opened the scoring when he latched on to Adam Boyd's pass and rattled a shot in off the bar.

O'Donovan beat the offside trap to slot past Steve Mildenhall and Southend's afternoon grew worse when Alan McCormack saw red for two bookings.

Simon Francis hit a post for the visitors but their misery was completed when O'Donovan fired a low shot home.


Southend United manager Steve Tilson told BBC Essex:

"Disappointing, because I didn't think it was a 3-0 game. I thought it was pretty even, but we probably created our own downfall.

"Trying to play in our own half and we had as many chances as them, but they took their chances."
