Wycombe Wanderers 2-1 Hartlepool United

Matt McClure

Wycombe extended their unbeaten run to six games and moved seven points clear of the League Two relegation zone with victory over Hartlepool.

The visitors took the lead against the run of play when Jack Barmby's effort found the top corner.

Wycombe deservedly levelled when Dean Morgan's close-range header beat Scott Flinders in the Hartlepool goal.

And the hosts secured the points through substitute Matt McClure's header from a Max Kretzschmar corner.

Despite the defeat, Hartlepool remained in play-off contention, five points behind Southend who occupy the final spot, while Wycombe climbed to 18th.
