Jeff Hughes struck the only goal of the game as high-flying Fleetwood defeated Hartlepool to move up to third.

The home side started brightly and but for Cod Army skipper Mark Roberts' goal line clearance, Steve Howard would have given Pools the lead.

The decisive strike came after home goalkeeper Scott Flinders spilled Antoni Sarcevic's low shot allowing Hughes to slot home the rebound.

Fleetwood made it three wins out of four after Howard was denied late on.
