Hartlepool United Reserves continued their unbeaten start to the league season with a convincing win over Gateshead.

Former Pools keeper Mark Cook was in goal for Gateshead with former Pools trialist Bakary Bojang also starting the game for the Heed.
Both Mackay and Fabian Yantorno went close at the start of the second half before Mackay doubled Pools lead soon after.
Bojang then pulled a goal back for the visitors when poked home a loose ball but a comeback was not on the cards as substitutes Callum Martin and Callum Hassan grabbed goals to seal a 4-1 win.
