Despite conceding inside a minute, the Seasiders fought back to earn their place in the Championship.

Ollie Turton steered the ball into his own net from Brennan Johnson's low cross before some fans had settled in their seats.

Pool were stunned by the early concession but rallied and grew into the game, Kenny Dougall scoring on his left foot from outside the area to draw level just before the break.
