Yeovil Town recovered from back-to-back League One defeats to beat bottom-of-the-table Hartlepool United.

On-loan midfielder Joe Edwards earned the Glovers their fourth home league win of the season when he headed in Sam Foley's teasing cross on seven minutes.

Yeovil continued to control a scrappy first half and Daniel Johnson and Paddy Madden went close to adding a second.

Pools, without an away victory and winless in 16 games, rallied after the break and missed numerous chances.

Striker James Poole was twice thwarted by Marek Stech before seeing his looping cross hit the bar, while Antony Sweeney thought he had found the net only for his strike to be ruled out for offside.
