The visitors notched their fourth triumph in five away games to ensure they are firmly ensconced in mid-table.
Matthew Tipton's (pictured) first goal for the club on 33 minutes set his side on the way to the points at Victoria Park.
Just past the hour mark, midfielder Rickie Lambert grabbed his tenth goal of the season, and it proved to be decisive.
In the last minute, Hartlepool defender Chris Westwood popped up with his first goal of the campaign but it proved to be little more than a consolation and Chris Turner's men now face an uphill struggle to force their way into the play-off zone.
