Hartlepool   1 - 1   Exeter

Hartlepool 1-1 Exeter

Hartlepool 1-1 Exeter

Hartlepool secured their League One survival subject to a points deduction after fielding an ineligible player but Exeter could still be relegated.

Scott Flinters denied Richard Logan but Matt Taylor headed Exeter in front.

Leon McSweeney hit the post for the home team and Taylor headed wide for the Grecians before Hartlepool's Adam Boyd crossed for Denis Behan to score.

The result leaves Exeter outside the drop zone on goal difference ahead of their final match against Huddersfield.


Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale told BBC Radio Devon:

"It was probably a fair result based on the play, as I thought we played terrifically well and put all of our effort into it.

"It's disappointing to hear of the other results but we're still in there fighting and we've still got a chance next week to win the game.

"It could have been worse, we could have lost the game today and it could have been curtains.

"We're in limbo for another week, which prolongs the anxiety but we'll just have to focus now on next week."
