Hartlepool United 2-1 Yeovil Town

A stoppage-time winner from Jason Kennedy helped Hartlepool claim all three points as they beat Yeovil following a dramatic finish at Victoria Park.

After a goalless first half, the home side took the lead through Gime Toure in the 47th minute, the French forward firing in the loose ball for his seventh goal of the campaign.

Rhys Murphy thought he had snatched a point for Yeovil when he converted James Tilley's cross in the first of five minutes of additional time.

However, Kennedy grabbed the winner a minute later when he pounced at the back post to end Yeovil's run of seven successive victories.
