Hartlepool boss Mick Wadsworth hailed Nolberto Solano for his free-kick that helped his side to a 2-1 win at Bournemouth.

Unbeaten Pools levelled matters when Solano curled in an exquisite 22-yard effort three minutes before half-time. And the visitors went on to grab all three points thanks to substitute Evan Horwood's equally-superb volley with just minutes remaining.

Delighted Wadsworth, whose team maintained their best ever start to a season and are now nine matches without defeat, said: "Nobby kept us in the game. His goal was fantastic to get us back in to the match because we had been disappointing until then.

"He has had two or three free-kicks since he joined us and put one just wide in our last game but I knew as soon as the ball left his foot it was going in. It was unerring."

Wadsworth, whose side climbed to third in the table, added: "It was a very pleasing victory and it is always nice to come from behind.

"I do not think we played our best and in the first half we were a little bit sluggish on the ball. We changed a few things around at half-time and in the second half I think we were the better team."
