James Poole's double earned Hartlepool a 3-2 npower League One victory at Chesterfield.

The Spireites took the lead after 10 minutes through Leon Clarke but Hartlepool hit back with two quickfire goals from Paul Murray's header (17) and Poole's low strike two minutes later.

Poole headed home three minutes after the break and despite Dean Holden pulling one back, the visitors held on.

Nathan Eccleston put the visitors ahead but a Daniel Nardiello double, the second a penalty, and a Jake Taylor strike secured three points for the Grecians.
