Aldershot Town 0-3 Hartlepool United
Hartlepool humbled Aldershot with a superb National League win at the Recreation Ground.
Josh Hawkes gave Pools the lead after only four minutes, converting on a swift breakaway after claims for a Shots penalty were turned down.
Hawkes was thwarted from doubling the lead on the half hour when Mitch Walker saved his penalty after Lewis Kinsella fouled Ryan Donaldson.
The visitors doubled their advantage when Gavan Holohan profited from excellent build-up play by fellow substitute Luke James and Nicke Kabamba to prod home.
Kabamba added a third late on to finish Danny Searles' men off.
