Porter produces magic to earn Hartlepool a draw

Striker Joel Porter has produced a heroic second-half hat trick to give Hartlepool a 3-3 draw in English League One action on the weekend.

The Aussie was the hero for the ‘Pools as they came from three-nil down to earn a point at home after Swindon Town looked to be the winners when Simon Cox completed his own treble just after the break.

Enter Porter who knocked his first in from close to the line on 53 minutes before a long-range free-kick gave the boys from Victoria Park a glimmer of hope.

The amazing feat was achieved in the 90th minute when Porter deftly chipped in from the right side.

It was his fourth goal in the league this season and he now has a total of seven goals from 12 matches including his three Carling Cup goals.
