CRAIG Hope brings you his SportMail merit marks following Tuesday’s 3-0 win over Crewe Alexandra.

Flinders 6 – Not a save of note to make, he could get used to the easy life

Austin 7 – Solid at the weekend and uncompromising again, you know what you’re getting right now

Collins 7 – Every game is the same at present, he’s cruising through matches with no fuss whatsoever

Hartley 7 – Hughes reckons he’s in the form of his life and it’s hard to disagree

Horwood 7 – Is marrying his great work going forward to a reliability at the back

Walton 6 – Injury blow after steady start

Humphreys 7 – Came into his own as game wore on and stroked some lovely passes about the park

Baldwin 9 – We’re running out of superlatives for the teenager and it’s hard to believe he was youngest out there. Outstanding. MOM.

Poole 8 – Graft and craft in equal measure and that’s what Hughes has asked for, a deserved standing ovation

Franks 8 – The desire to score his goal personified everything good about Pools right now

Wyke 8 – Deserved his goal and might have surprised watching Boro coaches with just how much he’s improved


Monkhouse 7 – Super strike to seal it and rightly won praise from his manager

James – On 90

Luscombe – On 82
