Pools close gap on leaders
Ritchie Humphreys ponders an 88th minute free-kick. Third-placed Pools were on a 14 game unbeaten run when league leaders Walsall came to town. With Micky Nelson having cancelled out Martin Butler's early goal, the game looked to be heading for a draw before Humphreys struck. Richard Barker added a third in stoppage time.
