Hartlepool United exited the FA Cup after suffering a 4-0 away defeat to Port Vale.

Hartlepool were knocked out of the competition in the second round after a disappointing display at Vale Park.

Pools were down 3-0 in the first 30 minutes and saw manager Craig Hignett sent to the stands by the end of the first half. The rout was complete in the second half after a penalty was scored by former Newcastle United midfielder Ryan Taylor.

Following Hartlepool's FA Cup departure, they can now concentrate back on the League where they face Cambridge United next at home.
