Story of the night: Bradford City 1-3 Hartlepool United – Mark Cullen magic helps Pools secure first away win
Hartlepool United picked up their first away win of the season in style as they beat Bradford City 3-1 at Valley Parade.
A brace from full league debutant put Pools in control before Paudie O’Connor headed Bradford back into the game going into the closing stages.
What threatened to be a nervy end to the game proved to be anything but as Yann Songo’o turned Reagan Ogle’s cross into his own net to put the result beyond doubt in stoppage time.
