Darrell Clarke was the hero for The Pool, when he drove home a Tommy Widdrington free-kick past Paul Bastock after 70 minutes.
Elsewhere, Torquay United took the lead against Rushden at Plainmoor from the penalty-spot, after Kevin Wills was fouled by Stuart Gray in the penalty area.
Jason Fowler stepped up and dispatched the spot-kick, however a second half Duane Darby goal rescued a precious point for the visitors.
Hull maintained their excellent run of form after a solitary Gary Alexander goal on 25 minutes earned The Tigers all three points at home to Bristol Rovers at the KC Stadium.
Carlisle boosted their chances of avoiding the drop after a vital 1-0 home win over Southend at Brunton Park, thanks to a first-half strike by Jon McCarthy.
