'The Clint Hill effect' – delighted Hartlepool United fans react to 2-1 comeback win over Northampton Town
Hartlepool United fans were delighted to see their side come from behind to secure a big three points at Victoria Park.
Over 5,500 supporters packed into The Vic for the League Two match against Northampton Town as Pools came from a goal down to win 2-1.
Goals from David Ferguson and Luke Molyneux cancelled out Sam Hoskins’ strike for The Cobblers and moved Hartlepool back into the top half, just two points off the automatic promotion places.
The match also marked the club’s first with Clint Hill officially part of the coaching staff.
Here’s how fans reacted to the win…
