John Hughes says that Hartlepool United will not get carried away after moving off the bottom of League One.

John Hughes has said that Hartlepool United still have work to do after climbing off the bottom of the League One table.

The side needed two late goals to come from behind against Leyton Orient yesterday, with the three points lifting them above Portsmouth.

The club's manager told Sky Sports News: "I felt we deserved something and had them hemmed in. They would only get something on the counter-attack and we got plenty in the box. Fair play to the guys for the spirit. The ground was bouncing at the end, that's what we want.

"We don't get carried away, just enjoy the taste of winning. It keeps the run going and it's important we do that. We are off the bottom, there's some big games to come and we get carried away when we score, but it's nice so go and enjoy it.

"It's so pleasing, the players have responded to the challenge ahead of us. All I keep saying is 'give yourself a chance'."

Hartlepool, who are unbeaten in their last five games, are eight points from safety.
