CRAIG Hope’s Pools marks from the Hartlepool United v Fleetwood game

Flinders 5 – Would have hoped to do better with goal

Duckworth 8 – Very encouraging debut, was aggressive and energetic. MOM.

Burgess 6 – Composed on the whole but one or two scary moments

Baldwin 6 – Recovered from sloppy start and was steady

Austin 6 – Switched to left-back and didn’t let anyone down

Walker 6 – Flashes of promise but a quieter afternoon

Walton 6 – Like the team, started brightly but was more subdued after break

Dolan 7 – Impressive first half before fading

Compton 7 – Best yet from the winger although end product still lacking

Poole 5 – An off-day for the striker

Howard 6 – Twice came close to scoring and competed well

Subs

Monkhouse 5 – Lucky to stay on the pitch after reckless lunge

Rodney 5 – Too late to impact

James – On 86
