Woods at the double as Hartlepool see off Maidstone

Hartlepool boosted their survival hopes as a 2-1 victory at Maidstone stretched their unbeaten run to five games.
Manager Matthew Bates named an unchanged side from the one which earned a 2-1 victory against Bromley and it paid off, Michael Woods opening the scoring by capitalising on a parry from goalkeeper Lee Worgan in the 25th minute.
Maidstone responded well, visiting keeper Scott Loach having to work hard to palm a strong Stuart Lewis drive over the bar.
But it was Hartlepool who doubled their lead in the 89th minute, Woods notching his second by calmly finishing into the bottom corner.
A Ross Lafayette goal for Maidstone made the final moments tense, but Pools held on to take another step towards safety.
