After beating Wrexham on Monday, Pools kept that winning feeling going as Kennedy nodded the visitors into the lead early on.

But Craig Hignett’s side failed to make their first half chances count as Jamie Reid levelled things up after the break for The Gulls.

A sustained period of pressure from the hosts was weathered by Pools as they soon got their reward for some defensive resilience as Kioso burst forward and hammered in the winner late on.
