ACCRINGTON Stanley slipped to their fourth straight league defeat - the worst league run in manager John Coleman's seven year reign at the club.
After defeats to Walsall, Hereford and Peterborough, the Reds desperately needed a win to stop their slide down the League Two table on Saturday.
And they looked in control when Andy Todd fired home his fourth goal of the season from the edge of the area just before half-time.
But the game turned when midfielder Jay Harris was sent off on 71 minutes for allegedly spitting on the shorts of Pool captain Michael Nelson after the two had been involved in an off the ball incident.
Within five minutes, sub Eifon Williams had fired home the equaliser - ending a goal drought which went back to April.
And then, after the Reds have benefitted from last minute goals, this time they suffered with Richie Humphreys firing home the winner in the 92nd minute.
"Jay is adamant he spat on the floor," said Coleman. "Their centre half has stamped on Jay and nothing has happened. We will look at the video and maybe appeal but it won't get us the three points back."
