A Mark Cullen brace on his full league debut and a late own goal saw Pools win 3-1 at Valley Parade with Paudie O’Connor heading a consolation in for the hosts.

It was Pools’ first away win since they beat Stockport County in the play-off final back in June and first away win in front of supporters since the 1-0 win at Solihull Moors back in March 2020.

It’s fair to say it’s been a long time coming and fans were keen to praise the side on Twitter afterwards – here’s what they had to say.
