Rory Williams put Lee Bradbury’s side ahead in the first half, before the hosts equalised.

But goals from Theo Lewis in the 84th minute and Wes Fogden in injury-time saw them take all three points.

Two changes were made from the Hawks’ clash last weekend.

Matt Tubbs, who was ill, and Jordan Rose, who failed a late fitness test, were replaced by Alfie Rutherford and Andreas Robinson.

The game came to life in the 18th minute when a through ball found Rutherford, who headed it over the goalkeeper.

But the Hawks’ player was then punched in the head just outside the penalty area as the goalkeeper followed through. As a result, Hutchings was sent off.

The visitors took the lead from the resulting free-kick when Williams fired under the wall.

On 42 minutes a scramble in the Hawks’ penalty area saw the referee point to the spot after spotting a push.

Corby Moore sent keeper Ryan Young the wrong way from the spot to give Poole an equaliser.

On 57 minutes a good move by the Hawks resulted in Williams’ shot be deflected wide by substitute goalkeeper Tom Rees.

The visitors took the lead through Lewis on 84 minutes, before finishing off the game in injury-time.

James Hayter did well to win the ball and Bradley Tarbuck’s cross was shot home by Fogden.
