Hartlepool ended a six-game losing streak with a win over Morecambe.

The visitors took the lead when Andy Parrish's deep cross was converted by Kevin Ellison's angled header.

Hartlepool had Simon Walton sent off midway through the second half for a foul on Jordon Mustoe.

However, substitute Jack Compton found the bottom corner with a 25-yard dipping drive and Jack Barmby coolly rounded goalkeeper Barry Roche to score and complete the comeback.
