Hartlepool 1-1 Walsall

Hartlepool and Walsall shared the points at Victoria Park as both sides had a man sent off.

Jon Macken fired the visitors ahead from the penalty spot after Paul Murray brought down Mat Sadler.

But Hartlepool equalished in bizarre fashion when Colin Nish tapped in after goalkeeper Scott Flinders' punt bounced over opposite number Jimmy Walker.

A clash between Walsall skipper Andy Butler and Pools substitute Nathan Luscombe saw both players dismissed.
