Match ends, Hartlepool United 2, Kings Lynn Town 0.
Luke Armstrong netted twice on his debut as Hartlepool returned to winning ways in the National League with a 2-0 victory over King's Lynn at Victoria Park.
Signed on a season-long loan from League Two side Salford, Armstrong opened the scoring in the 22nd minute when he converted a rebound after Linnets goalkeeper Archie Mair had brilliantly saved Gavan Holohan's initial effort.
Armstrong doubled his tally seven minutes into the second half, tapping in a Lewis Cass cross.
Adam Marriott missed a great chance to cut the deficit, firing wide from close range, as Pools claimed a first league victory in four games and snapped a five-match winless run at home.
