Hartlepool United were edged out on home turf yet again, this time by visitors Blackpool.

But how did the Pools players rate in the 1-0 loss at the Northern Gas & Power Stadium?

Here we take a look...

Pools XI (4-3-3)

Trevor Carson - One fantastic stop to deny Vassell. Could do little about the goal... 8

Liam Donnelly - Solid enough show in going forward and at the back... 6

Matthew Bates - Won virtually everything that came his way.... 7

Scott Harrison - Another decent defensive show from last week's man of the match... 7

Jake Carroll - Coped with the wide threat adequately, despite some recent criticism... 7

Nicky Featherstone - Much more involved this week, than last. Makes things tick... 7

Josh Laurent - A couple of excellent bursts forward, but still too hesitant in front of goal... 6

Lewis Hawkins - Industrious 90 minutes in the middle... 7

Lewis Alessandra - Awful, awful penalty. Why was he even taking it? Only he will know... 6

Rhys Oates - Pools man of the match. Some dangerous breaks off the right hand side... 7

Billy Paynter - Poor for Blackpool's goal. Not quite as big an impact as last week... 6
