Hartlepool United moved off the bottom of the League One table after a last gasp win over Leyton Orient.

Report from Victoria Park

Hartlepool United moved from the bottom of League One for the first time since November after a late win over Leyton Orient at Victoria Park.

Pools fell behind early on after a harsh penalty was awarded against Jack Baldwin. Martin Rowlands stepped up to give his side the lead on eight minutes.

After a tepid game of few chances the match was turned upside down in the last 5 minutes as Peter Hartley converted an Evan Horwood corner before a Steve Howard knockdown was cooly converted by Luke James to send the home fans into raptures and send Pools above Portsmouth in the table.

FT: Hartlepool 2 Leyton Orient 1
