Hartlepool   3 - 1   Colchester

Hartlepool 3-1 Colchester

Hartlepool 3-1 Colchester

Roy O'Donovan's brace propelled Hartlepool towards safety and severely dented Colchester's play-off hopes.

Ian Henderson gave the visitors an early lead but the hosts hit back immediately when James Brown headed home Leon McSweeney's cross.

O'Donovan then latched on to a through ball from Andy Monkhouse to fire Hartlepool ahead.

O'Donovan's late penalty sealed the win after Simon Hackney brought down McSweeney in the box.

Hartlepool are set to find out within the next 10 days if they will be deducted three points following Garry Liddle's illegal appearance against Brighton.


Hartlepool United boss Chris Turner told BBC Tees:

"Everything about the game: the performance, the result, the support, was the Hartlepool of old, there was a spirit in the stadium.

"You knew Colchester were going to come for the win, the way they played they were here for the three points, and people thought we've got to get behind these boys today.

"We've beaten a team in the top seven, and we've been so close to that this season, we deserved the game because of the way the lads dug in."

Colchester United manager Aidy Boothroyd told BBC Essex:

"We did start well, we were on the front foot. We scored a goal, deservedly so and before you know it we are 2-1 down.

"Very disappointed, as long as there is a mathematical chance, we have to go after it (the playoffs)."
